Teen Ministry seeks to win to Christ and improve the lives of severely impoverished teenage girls living in the “garbage city” of Cairo, Egypt. Teen Ministry primarily teaches these young girls to find joy in Christ; much of their time is devoted to praying and studying the Bible. Teen Ministry teaches girls who have never been taught hygiene or cleanliness how to wash themselves and make changes to improve their health through hygiene in their homes and families. In the area that Teen Ministry operates, girls are often abused and neglected. Teen Ministry shows them genuine love, often for the first time in their lives. Teen Ministry also educates the girls and provides them with medical and dental care.
