Education is the most powerful tool ...
The Orchard Africa Education program helps local churches start an early learning programme, provide an after-school learning center, and conduct life skills and basic entrepreneurial training for older students. A good education equips children to pursue their dreams and break the cycle of generational poverty.
Preschools are started in local churches, providing jobs for teachers and encouraging a love for learning from a very young age. Over 6,000 children have gone through our church-run preschools.
After-School Learning Center
Children from the local schools not only receive assistance from church staff with homework but also have a safe place where studying, reading and learning is encouraged.
The church facilitates life skills, vocational skills, sports, and music. This gives youth the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to learn and be a productive member of the community.
All education programmes are run by the local church. When a local church steps up to care for the vulnerable through providing education and essential life and vocational skills, poverty and injustice is addressed in a meaningful way.
