Holistic Child Development

Why Holistic Child Development?

What is it?

Imagine a car with only three wheels or a house with no roof.

When one key component is lacking, a car or a house can’t live up to its full potential.

Now what about a child?

Especially one who is in object poverty or with no parent? He or she is created with four integral dimensions: Mind, Body, Heart and Spirit.

So when it comes to releasing a child from poverty, why address just one of these needs or just two or three – when all four are crucial?

Little Angels Ministry Uganda focuses on developing the whole child -an approach that helps release a children from poverty instead of merely sustaining them through it.
