Many Christians in Pakistan are so poor that they have to send their children out to work to make ends meet. This project provides a monthly food parcel for very needy Christian families. This means the families can afford to send their children to school. With an education the children will be able to get better jobs than their parents had and thus break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy. The cost per family is £18 (€21, US$29, AU$32, NZ$35) a month. A sponsorship programme is available for Barnabas Fund supporters who can commit themselves to regular help.
