Our Mission

In partnership with Misgana Minstries, 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 and health care. 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 7. Without a quality education, children have little to no hope of breaking the cycle of gripping poverty. 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 have little to no hope of breaking the cycle of gripping poverty.”
