The Sponsorship Program for International Children’s Education (SPICE) is a cooperative effort led by Brethren in Christ in India and Nepal and supported by BIC Canada, and the Brethren in Christ US. SPICE exists to provide educational access to underprivileged children in a Christian hostel experience. Through the SPICE program:
- 9 hostels are operated throughout India and Nepal
- 1000 children are housed, fed, cared for and educated each year
- Some of the world’s poorest are cared for
It is the merging of educational instruction, holistic child development program and spiritual enrichment that makes SPICE so effective.
