Child Care Ministries

In 2012, ICCM began a new project in Rwanda.  In an impoverished community near Kigali, the capital city, the Mbabe Free Methodist Church has begun a preschool for children ages 3 through 6.  When children turn 7, they will begin to attend government schools.  At that point, they will be enrolled in a study center program at the church to complement their learning experience and enrich their lives spiritually, socially and physically.
