Same Mission. Bigger Vision.

Check out some of the ways Agape is expanding in the future

REPLICATION:

We already expanded to Kitale, Kenya and saw a 75% reduction in the number of street children in one year. Now we are taking a look at other underserviced communities in Kenya.  For example, there are over 800 children living on the streets in Nakuru, and very few organizations working to reunite children back with their families.

MULTIPLICATION:

In cities where there are existing organizations that could be trained and equipped to work with street children, we are working to invest and increase these organizations’ impact and improve their care.  For example, we have already converted organizations in Eldoret and Kakamega. By investing in these organizations we’ve been able to increase the rate at which children are being reunited from 700 through Agape alone to over 1500 children per year.

Bigger Impact. Better Care.

Check out these new programs we are investing in to improve our current reach. 

Family Strengthening

We are piloting ways to strengthen families in the network of 700 villages that we currently serve.  By working with vulnerable and at-risk families before family separation occurs, we can prevent future generations of children from running to the streets. Prevention stops the problem before it starts. 

Family Trauma Counseling

Our evidence-based approaches to trauma counseling could have a bigger impact if we could bring these services to families directly. We are looking to invest in a team of new trauma counselors to bring these services to children and families.

Remote Social Work Offices

Before we invest in building a full rehabilitation center, we’re building tools that will enable us to open a small social work office.  This would allow us to provide more coverage, build our relationships with the community, and make plans for expansion.

Donation FAQs

Accordion Closed by Default

Are my contributions tax deductible?

Agape Children’s Ministry is a faith-based organization. We rely solely upon the Lord to move in the hearts of individuals, groups, churches, and other organizations to contribute the funds necessary to carry out our ministry. We receive no funds or financial support from the U.S. government. Agape periodically receives financial assistance from the Kenyan government’s Street Families Rehabilitation Trust Fund.

Contributions to Agape are tax deductible in accordance with our IRS status as a 501(c)3 charitable, non-profit organization. Agape Children’s Ministry Tax ID number is 20-4191319.

How is agape committed to financial integrity?

We are an accredited member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) which has strict standards for financial stewardship. Annually we also engage a certified public accounting firm to perform a compilation of all of the Agape Finances. Copies of our annual financial statements can be found here.

How is Agape funded?

Agape is primarily funded through the regular, faithful giving of individuals and churches. Additional support comes through grants and through the sale of items from our online store.

Where is my financial support most needed?

Your giving to the General Fund and our Reunite a Family program does the most good. It allows Agape to put your giving to work in areas that need it most.

How are missionaries supported?

Agape Children’s Ministry uses what is referred to as a “deputized” support-raising approach for its missionaries. Each missionary is responsible for raising gifts to provide sufficient funds to pay for his/her own ministry work. Donors are able to make contributions to ACM with a preference to support the work carried out by a particular missionary but not specifically earmarked for that missionary. No ACM General Fund money is used to pay missionary salaries or benefits.

What does the General Fund pay for?

The General Fund provides for the majority of ministry and program expenses in Kenya as well as our modest operating costs in the US office. Approximately 83¢ of each $1.00 donated to the general fund is sent to directly to Kenya for programs and services.

Can I Designate Funds?

Aside from supporting individual missionary families, you can also direct your giving via Designated Funding.

Designated Fund Accounts are approved by the Board of Directors and reside within the General Fund. They are used toward specific ministry needs as designated by the donor. When the specific need is fulfilled, the balance of the funds are moved to the General Fund where they can continue to positively impact other pressing ministry needs as the Board of Directors determines.

Use our contact form below to inquire about Designated Funding.
