Richard and his mother and grandmother live in a small house in the nearby village. 15 people live in the house together. His grandfather died 2 years ago after a long illness. His father has been gone for a few years. Richard had the opportunity to attend Lifesong School for the past 3 years, but Richard needs the opportunity to transition into a different environment to give him a chance to succeed outside the classroom.

Lifesong schools exist to prepare students–mentally and spiritually–to launch into the world. So it would seem appropriate at the end of a school year to reflect on the goodness of God. At the end of the school year, each of the three Lifesong school campuses in Ethiopia has its own program, where the parents are invited, skits are performed, poems and essays are read, speeches are given, and the families hear a report on the school year that has just concluded. Awards are then given to the top students, the best clubs, the winning sports teams, and the honored staff members. And finally, the students go to their classrooms to receive their report cards. According to Gary, Misgana Ministies & Lifesong Ethiopia Director– It’s a really big deal here in rural Ethiopia and we are happy to welcome large crowds! The staff and parents always appreciate the festivities. At the Ziway Primary school one of the boys, Million, received the award … Continue reading
