Shoubra Day Care

Children of Promise began ministry in Egypt in 1993 through the New Hope Day Care Center.  The Center provides quality Christian day care to Christian and Muslim families as an outreach of the Shoubra Church of God in Cairo.

The Center is known for its loving and safe environment, cleanliness, and quality of preschool education.   Many Muslim children and their families have learned about Christ through this ministry over the years.

Sponsors participate in a program sponsorship through New Hope Day Care Center.   A program sponsorship provides support and care for a group of children rather than an individual.  

The cost of sponsoring the program here is $32 per month. Your support is giving very special children in Egypt a hope and a future.

egyptEgypt is located in Northern Africa, bordering the Mediterranean Sea.  It borders Libya, the Gaza Strip, and the Red Sea north of Sudan. It includes the Asian Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt has long been thought of as the land of pyramids and monuments. It has also been the land of emperors and kings.

It is one of the world’s oldest civilizations, having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 years ago.

The official language of Egypt is Arabic, with English and French widely understood by those who have been educated.

Recent unrest in Egypt has made life very difficult and dangerous for its people.  It is a land of great needs. 

The literacy rate is only 57.7%. 

The infant mortality rate in Egypt is 33.9 deaths out of 1,000 live births. 

Life is difficult for families, with resources and amenities in short supply.
