Love God. Love Others. Make a Difference.
The Bridge's purpose is found in our motto, "Love God. Love Others. Make a Difference." We believe that God has called us to impact the world that we are in for His glory. We are committed to making a difference locally, nationally, and internationally.
One Child Matters has created an opportunity for us to make a difference across the globe. By partnering with One Child Matters, The Bridge is able to impact children who are in need through sponsorship. With your help, we can provide children with nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and hope in Jesus Christ. We are also able to leverage sponsorship to impact the nations where these children reside.
I strongly encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today. Maybe one day that child will grow to love God, love others, and make a difference.
Extreme poverty is an overwhelming global problem that breaks the heart of God. Fortunately, we know of a solution that's modeled after God's own interventions in the world. It's incredibly effective and life-changing. You start with one child, and choose to sponsor them to help lift them out of poverty. By ensuring your child develops in a well-rounded way, they can break the cycle of poverty forever!
Sponsorship allows us to address each major area of a child's life:
Spiritually, children have the opportunity to accept Christ as Savior and become mature disciples.
The programs provide educational support and tutoring to help children academically.
Health screenings and hygiene training address common health concerns. Nutritious snacks, meals, and supplements help children grow into healthier adults.
Sponsorship brings children to a program that provides safe places to play and develop friendships with input from caring adults.
One Child Matters can create a crucial foundation of support, but there's another important factor in a child's development - YOU! As a sponsor, you are an incredible source of encouragement. Your letters and prayers are powerful and effective. Your faithful support opens doors of opportunity - it is one of the best investments you can make in God's kingdom!
Haiti occupies the western third of the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea. The Dominican Republic occupies the remaining two-thirds of the island. Haiti is slightly smaller than the state of Maryland. Approximately 9 million people live in this island nation.
The majority of Haitians are of African descent, and a small mulatto and white population makes up the minority. Haitians are also predominately Roman Catholic, but half of the population practices voodoo to some extent as well. Haiti’s official languages are French and Creole. Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Eighty percent of its population lives under the poverty line, with 55 percent living on one dollar or less per day. Although the exact unemployment rate is unknown, it is extremely high, as more than two-thirds of the labor force is without a formal job.
When asked if she had a letter from her sponsor, young Hiwot came back quickly, clutching a treasure. It was a postcard sent more than two years earlier, and it contained a prayer that helped transform her life.
A group of sponsors committed to transforming a project that serves over 200 children in Kenya. What they didn't realize at the time was that life-transformation would not stop at the children.
Ilene found a new hope at the Philippines Child Rescue Home, where she learned to process through all the abuse she and her sisters suffered at the hands of others. Her transformation was so profound, she wanted to go back to her village. Watch what happened next...
