A key part of Children’s Relief Internationals efforts to share the light of Christ among the poor in word and deed is education. CRI’s US and Majority World missionaries work together to create and support ministries that offer quality general and spiritual education. This includes teaching reading, writing and math along with Biblical foundations about Jesus Christ and His love for the world. CRI efforts to support this work are rooted in offering both individual and group child sponsorships.
Please note: Children's Relief International is a Christian Mission Agency. We look for individuals with a strong sense of calling from God to serve in modern day missions. Like similar agencies, all CRI staff members raise support for their salaries. We help the support raising process through professional presentations and personal training.
