What a I love a lot about this service and I witness that when I visited the field, is The Education sector takes care of preschoolers by providing them with care and basic learning before they start public school. The sector serve children ages 4 - 7. The program encompasses several aspects of the children’s lives including:
1- Behavioral education which is much needed in the villages of Upper Egypt
2- Montessori program, they introduce this way of learning at a very young age, how smart it that!
3- Nutritional support, those kids can't be served that way if it wasn't for this organization.

I worked as a volunteer in Care 4 Needy Copts (C4NC). It is a Coptic nonprofit organization helping the needy people in upper Egypt. C4NC exists to show a caring face for many people in Egypt that just barely exist. Many survive on less than a couple of dollars a day. Many suffer from poor health, little or no food, they're drinking polluted water, if they can get it. And we believe that as Christians we have a responsibility to reach out to these people and make a difference.

C4NC works to facilitate people's development to the point where they are empowered to take care of themselves. C4NC don't just buy things, they buy solutions. Their vision is working with people to help them find a way to solve their own dilemmas.

It is obvious from volunteering with the Shepherd and Mother of Light/Care 4 Needy Copts that the people at this organization are truly passionate about helping the needy in Egypt. One of the most exceptional things about this nonprofit is its low overhead cost. You can really be sure that when you donate, your contribution will directly help those who need it.
