Everyone has heard the names of Pakistani towns in the news. Warring Muslim sects and natural disasters fragment the country and make it difficult to reach for Christ. Instead of focusing on the areas torn apart by fighting and media attention, Awana Pakistan sees the opportunities for the gospel. Awana exists in Pakistan to reach kids with the incredible news of the gospel, equip leaders there with courage and proven training methods, and to change the lives of many who wonder if life can provide something more.  

Reaching Kids in Pakistan
There are over 65 million children in Pakistan today under the age of 15. Over the age of 15, only about one out of two people over the age of 15 can read and write due to the prevalence of child labor. Although heavily Muslim, Pakistan allows Christian media, such as Awana program materials, to be distributed. Awana Pakistan offers learning through fun activities and trained leaders, and it is able to work through local churches in ways foreign organizations cannot. Since the first club began there in 1997, the gospel of Christ has shown each child in Awana that he or she is precious to God and created specially by Him!

Every week, Awana Pakistan reaches 31,237 children with the gospel in their heart language through 508 clubs.

Equipping Leaders in Pakistan
Awana is a proven program for reaching kids with the gospel. But it disciples the rest of the church through equipping the Awana club leaders, and discipleship is key for the Christian minority in Pakistan. Each Awana program is built upon leadership that is trained to reach children, like those who use our Leader-Based Strategy (LBS) curriculum. National missionaries, who understand the complexity of their countries, assist the churches which use the Awana program.
In Pakistan, there are three missionaries or missionary couples serving the churches with Awana clubs. They help the churches to implement the program and train the leaders. A national director provides training and oversight for the missionaries.

Changing the World in Pakistan
Other countries are not like the U.S., where kids have an array of choices for activities. Sometimes children in Pakistan have to labor alongside their parents instead of attending school. They have few outlets for enjoyment. When a church starts the Awana program, children have a meaningful and fun place to go as they learn about the gospel. Adults are discipled and trained to make more disciples. Awana seeks to reach more children in Pakistan with the gospel and equip more leaders there.
