Children’s Gift Ministry Backpack Program focuses on getting children off of the streets, out of the reach of gangs and into schools. Since 2012 it has reached over 90,000 children, changing a nation through education. This program is rescuing children and youth to stop the cycle of gang violence in what has been called “The Murder Capital of the World.” Although the government school is free, school supplies are required to attend and many families cannot afford them. The children who cannot attend schools are then easy victims for street gangs who get them hooked on drugs and use them to move their drugs as well as to commit extortion and murder.
