On average the school life expectancy of a child is 5 years. This means that the booming population (50% of the nation’s population is under 15 years old) on average have a 5th grade education at best. While education is considered… important, opportunities for schooling are sparse. In a nation where only 1 in 3 children attend school, more schools are needed. We have seized this opportunity and have almost 500 students in our 2 primary schools.
Over 95% of the children coming to our Christian schools are Muslim. Parents recognize the good education being provided, and are willing to send their children to us, even though their children come home singing about Jesus. This has proven to be a powerful ministry and has opened the door to develop relationships with many Muslim families.
