Education Introduction

Sow the Seeds of Education


An Example of an Educational Cause with World Gospel Mission

In areas like Central America, education is simply a dream. Education as a ministry cause is making dreams achievable. In Central America, these outreaches are as unique as the people they serve.

Children are learning how to read and write across the street from a city dump, and adults are learning a skill at a vocational school. In addition to learning to read and write, boys are learning auto repair and taking care of cows and pigs on a farm and girls are learning to sew. Some adults even study at a seminary to effectively spread God’s Word in their communities and throughout their country.

Necessary Textbook: A Bible—Kenya

It’s hard to learn without a guide. Many Kenyans are thirsty to know more about God, but they lack the only necessary textbook—a Bible. College students attending Christian colleges need the Bible for schoolwork. Women in rural Kenya who attend Bible studies need a Bible to actually study. Bibles are even needed by men and women in prison and victims of severe trauma, as the knowledge of God’s Word helps them persevere through their trials. Donate $10 to give one of these people the invaluable Word of God.

Thirsty for Theology—Kenya

Theological education prepares pastors who will grow the church in their communities, and Africa Gospel Church in Kenya conducts training all over the country. However, as students from unreached people groups, such as the Turkana, Pokot, Ilchamus, Samburu, and Duruma, begin their biblical training, they struggle to pay their school fees. There are few supporting churches in these areas, and the students’ families are often not Christians. Help prepare these student-pastors to impact their communities for Christ.

Any donation amount is welcome, but here are some giving options:
$125 per student per month
$500 per student per semester

Scholarships for Orphans—Kenya

There are several private, Christian orphanages around Tenwek Hospital. Although there is free education in Kenya, there are other costs that make it difficult for orphans to attend school. A small donation from you can make a big difference in these children’s lives by giving them access to school.

Preschool fees for one child for a year: $75
Elementary school fees for one child for a year: $125

Train Children in the Way They Should Go—Uganda

Imagine a schoolroom where nobody has a book but the teacher—and the only lessons you can work on are those you've laboriously copied off of a chalkboard. Many schools in rural Uganda struggle due to lack of supplies and funds. Just $7 per child changes that, providing children with their own textbooks.

Church for College Students—Uganda

Kampala International University, one of the biggest in East Africa, has church services on its massive campus every week, often meeting for worship in one of the larger classrooms. But if the school decides that it needs that classroom for something else on Sunday morning, seekers are left, well, seeking! Help this church rent a dedicated building close to campus for services and Bible studies, so that it can continue ministering to more than 600 students who attend every week.

24/7 Teachers—Uganda

When Christian educators are able to live in the same community where they teach, their influence extends beyond teaching at school. By modeling Christ-likeness in all areas of life, they become community leaders and examples for students, parents, and other community leaders. Embed a Christian teacher in a Ugandan community as a living example of Christ.

Education for AIDS Orphans—Uganda

In Uganda, when a child is orphaned (or parents are unable to provide care), the focus is often on survival—finding a safe home, getting enough to eat, etc. One crucial and often overlooked need is education. A mere $12 per month provides an orphan with a good education, a loving Christian environment, textbooks, and school lunch. Give these kids hope for now, and for the future.

College for $600 a Year?—Papua New Guinea

Although $600 sounds like an unbelievable bargain for higher education, that’s the going rate in Papua New Guinea. However, the average resident makes only about half that amount in a year. Going to college to be a pastor is little more than a dream for most. Through Christian Union Bible College, you can make that dream come true for tomorrow’s leaders. Raise money for a single scholarship…and transform a church and a nation!

Sponsor a Library Book at El Sembrador—Honduras

Many rural elementary schools in Honduras barely have enough money for school supplies, let alone a library for their students. Three years ago El Sembrador began a mobile library program that was designed to provide books to kids and instill in them a love of reading. The program has been a great success and has expanded from one school to five! However, we are now in need of more books so the students have new material to read. You can help their passion for reading and learning continue to grow by sponsoring a library book.

Homes for Missionaries in Language Study—Paraguay

When missionaries come to the Guarani-Jopara Language Institute to study Guarani, the heart language of Paraguayans, it’s a struggle to find a good place to live. The institute is located in a remote area, and available houses for rent are not in very good condition. We want to construct two homes for language students in order to have reliable residences available close to the institute. Your gift of any amount to meet the goal of $40,000 for each house will allow missionaries to have a decent place to stay as they study the heart language of the people they are coming to share Jesus with.
