Our Mission

In partnership with Misgana Ministries, our schools (in Ziway & Adami Tulu) are known as the best in the city. They strive for academic achievement and increased use and understanding of English, while providing two nutritious meals a day. Along with providing their educational needs, we also seek to incorporate spiritual emphasis with daily prayer, Bible reading, Bible memorization, and celebrating Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter.

Our three school campuses provide education for Nursery students through Grade 8. Without a quality education, children will not have the foundational knowledge to advance to their full potential in life. Our hope is to not only provide education, but also share the love of Christ with students as we guide them into a hopeful future.

"Without a quality education, children will not have the foundational knowledge to advance to their full potential in life."

  • Providing a healthy feeding program for students to prevent malnutrition
