Kindergarten Program

The Hauran Connection

Kindergarten"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."



Two kindergarten programs, one in Al-Sweda and one in Daraa, serve 125 children. The majority of children are not Christian who experience the love of Christ through this ministry. Many Christian children cannot afford to attend. Metropolitan Saba sees this ministry as an opportunity to rebuild a culture where the Faith can flourish.

Needs to be met:

  • Funds for each child at $30 per month (total $360 per year)
