What does "child-focused" mean?
Children are the most vulnerable members of any community, so Eliezer Relief Ministries project activities are designed to have maximum benefit for them. This means improving the lives of children by dealing with the causes of their suffering, not just the symptoms. It also means recognizing that children live in a larger context of family and community, so sustainable development work needs to impact all of these.
For example, if children are hungry in a community, Eliezer Relief Ministries aims to resolve the underlying food insecurity issues affecting the community, investing in projects like improved irrigation systems, seeds and training. These way children get the food they need, not just this year, but sustainable into the future.

Sabbath schools are also one of the main aspects to control the
children who are directed to wrong route. In these we teach the children how to
obey elders, how to live in the society and how to become a good citizen in the
society. And also supply nutrition food, note books, school materials, school
