are Ghana's greatest resource--
a precious treasure from God.
Every Child Ministries (ECM) is a nondenominational Christian mission devoted to the needs of African children. Every Child Ministries is registered and officially recognized as an NGO in Ghana. ECM joins hands with Ghanaian families, churches, and civil authorities to help develop Ghana's greatest treasure--her children--to their highest potential.
Since 1985 Every Child Ministries has been working with African churches to assure that the new generation of the continent has an ample opportunity to consider the claims of Jesus Christ. ECM has been working in Ghana since 1999.
ECM is a Christian NGO. That is, our motivation for service flows from our love for Jesus Christ. We offer Christian teaching from the Bible. However, our services are open to children of all religious persuasions. No child is ever forced to change his or her religion in order to participate.
ECM Targets Ministries to: Street children, slave children, school children, ALL CHILDREN--because EVERY CHILD is precious to God.
