By supporting Christ-centered education, we are raising up an empowered, God-honoring generation, equipping them to escape the cycle of poverty that has plagued their families for generations. These educated children and young adults can provide for themselves with dignity. The process begins with reading, writing and arithmetic — basic academic skills. Many poor children would never obtain an education without outside help, so we remain committed to promoting and funding Christian education on their behalf.
The support from our donors in 2018 funded scholarships, salaries and other critical components of our partners’ educational outreaches. One of those outreaches, Elohim Evangelical School in Peru, provides poor children with Christian education and daily meals. We also funded the construction of a new school building at the Boukan Kare campus of Divine Shelter Schools.
