  • Some students come to our school for a short period of time, while others stay for years.
  • Our work is funded by the generosity of private donors so that we can offer housing and schooling at no cost to the families we serve.

I am actually not a parent of a child in this school but I would like to say that I have been acquainted with some of the children and one main teacher. I have to say that I was amazed at the warm nature of the male teacher and genuine fatherly instruction. One of the most godly men I think I''ve had the pleasure of meeting. The children were amazingly well behaved. The way he cares for those children and directs them in life is a gift from God. This school is a blessing from God and a true diamond in the rough.
