"Child of Bethlehem" - Palestine
Currently an estimated 53% of the Palestinian population is under the age of 18, meaning there is an opportunity to have a huge impact on many children’s lives.
This project seeks to reach out to all Palestinian children and young people through a programme which teaches Bible-based values and education. It deals with a Christian attitude towards feelings and emotions, and teaches them Christ’s hope. This programme aims to build the faith and knowledge of children and youth in Biblical Scriptures as well as in the person of Jesus. This year the programme is celebrating over 17 years of ministry among children and youth!
Throughout the programme there are events, trips, camps, puppet shows, Biblical trips, school programs and much much more. There are also special events for Christmas, Easter and summer. Bibles and Scriptures are distributed through this programme to children who need them.
During the last few years of the project there have been over 50,000 Bibles, tracts and booklets distributed and around 50 summer camps, with over 40,000 children being reached!
The Palestinian Bible Society hopes that through this project’s impact, and by investing in children and youth through Bible interaction, that the next generation of people in Palestine will be known as a Spirit-filled, God-fearing, Christian generation.
