A Community Approach

Tackling the root causes of poverty requires a deep understanding of the community, its people and their daily challenges. At Stephen’s Children, our high quality education programs, leadership training, spirtual support and family assistance programs are designed to address these daily struggles and empower the children and their families for tomorrow. 

Early Education

Through our Community Education Centers (CECs), we operate over 100 kindergarten-style schools that offer rare educational opportunities to improverished children throughout Egypt. Our curriculum covers essential subjects like reading, math, personal hygiene,responsiblity, Arabic and English language skills and Christian values.

Grade School (K-9)

Since 2012, we have founded two schools for grades K-9 that serve 1800 students to provide high-quality education embedded with Christian values. We enrich the state-mandated curriculum with computer skills, vocational development, a full arts program and sports. These schools welcome Egyptians from all religious backgrouns with most of these graduates continuing on to high school. With this type of success, we are looking to expand our model as funding and approvals are achieved.

Literacy Classes

With nearly half of all young woman classified as illiterate in Egypt, the Literacy Single Class Program is aimed to teach literacy, basic arithmetic, and life skills.  Once completed, the young women can recieve a Certificate of Competency that enables them to qualify for entrance to the state school system giving them access to new opportunities.

Stephen’s Children hosts monthly gathering to provide much needed support for the moms. Often the heart of the family structure, it is important for the moms to learn how to provide proper hygiene, emotional support and care for their children. These meetings also allow women to share personal and family issues in a safe, positive environment.

At our Vocational Training Centers, we offer a valuable alternative for older children not enrolled in primary education. Our program teachs them essential trade skills, basic literacy, alongside Christian values. With this foundation, our goals is to help them achieve personal responsibility and financial self-reliance.
