Breaking the bitter chains of poverty through education, housing, and healthcare.

Through The GOD’s CHILD Project’s family of organizations, care facilities, community outreach, and teams of volunteers, the mission to “Break the Bitter Chains of Poverty” is brought to life.

The GOD’S CHILD Project (GCP) is a non-denominational organization reaching children and families in intense poverty. GCP provides essential care for thousands of children, widows, single mothers and families in Guatemala, El Salvador, India, Malawi, and the United States.

Dedicated to sustainable and permanent change, GCP has established an international presence in these poverty-stricken countries by providing education, healthcare, basic needs, emergency disaster relief, human rights services and family care. GCP’s efforts create stability and growth in broken areas of the world.
