Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it (Proverbs 22:6). We work hard to serve the educational, social, and spiritual needs of the children in our community through our faith-based primary and secondary school, located on our central Nampula campus.
In 2019 we opened a school which now has 600 students in grades one through twelve. Besides the children in our orphanage and outreach programs, we opened our school to additional families able to afford a modest tuition to help us pay teacher salaries and maintain our school facilities. Our school uses a national curriculum for core subjects and has weekly chapels, Bible classes, and English as a foreign language for students in all grades. We put a lot of energy into teacher and staff development programs where we focus on spiritual formation, special education, and cultivating a holistic community of faith.
Im going to be a doctor secondary program
There is a serious shortage of doctors in Mozambique, so we are always looking for students who are interested in the medical field. After sending several young people through nursing school and one through medical school, we discovered that there is a very sharp learning curve required to grasp the material in their courses. For this reason, we developed the I’m Going To Be A Doctor program for secondary school students. During summer break we recruit local medical school students to introduce our students to general medicine, nursing, optometry, dentistry, pharmacy, nutrition, clinical psychology, and hospital administration. They learn first aid and CPR, practice using stethoscopes and blood pressure monitors, discuss Christian values and ethics in healthcare, and participate in hospital role-playing activities in Portuguese and English.
Since 2003 our supporters have enabled us to give out over 70 scholarships that have resulted in 12 students graduating with university degrees (the majority of whom grew up in the orphanage) and 18 students graduating from college training programs (half of whom grew up in the orphanage). This includes 14 teachers, 8 nurses, 3 lawyers, 2 NGO administrators, a doctor, a hospital administrator, and a musician. We have also sent 15 students through Bible school and had 18 students complete trade school programs in accounting, cosmetology, construction, culinary arts, electrical repair, human resources, mechanics, plumbing, refrigerator repair, and public relations.
Evanjáfrica’s statement of faith, rooted in God’s unconditional love, grace, and the transformative power of His redeeming presence, reflects our unwavering devotion to Jesus.
