/ THEORY OF CHANGE
The theory of change for Child Support Ministries Africa is to empower families economically so that they can support their children to enable them rise to their greater potentials and be leaders and change agents in their community.
Orphans and needy children are the most vulnerable to hunger, denial, disease and abuse in any given community. If these children are not supported to grow to their full potential in the community, then we risk the extinction of the next generation or at the least mal-development of the community.
