The mission of Stephen’s Children is to serve Christian children and families living in Cairo’s garbage slums or in impoverished communities throughout Egypt as well as in rural Upper Egypt. Stephen’s Children ministries aid more than 31,000 children and their families.

Many of Stephen’s Children’s Egypt-based workers grew up in impoverished communities and are now giving back to help change the lives of others. The ministries in which they serve offer mentoring and humanitarian assistance, access to pre-primary schools, a Basic Education School, vocational training, and spiritual instruction. Ancillary programs, available to all people regardless of religious affiliation, include:

  • Home visits
  • Community education
  • Literacy classes
  • Mothers’ gatherings
  • Sports camps
  • Vocational training
  • Medical services
  • Orphanages
  • Parenting programs
