Chisopi School

Chisopi is a mountain village with the community being mostly Muslim. In March 2014 a missionary teacher moved to the village in order to identify and register children for the school that started in September 2014. There are currently 230 children in the Pre-School through Standard Three classes. 80% of the learners come from Muslim families. This is a great opportunity to share the love of Christ to the next generation. Apart from our school, there is no other school in that village and there is a need for education.

Teachers cannot give personal attention to pupils; slow learners are not attended to. Muslims believe that when children are exposed to education they may convert to Christianity and therefore they do not send their children to school.

In order to strengthen the work of church planting in the village, the impact into the community is broadened as caretakers can be reached through the children. We are providing education in a community where there is no other educational activity.

Partner with us through prayer

All of our schools are in need of financial support. We are struggling to feed our students because food prices have gone up so much! We are also struggling to pay our teachers. Because of this, we have a high turn over rate of teachers. Please pray for God’s provision so our schools can remain open!

The Need

Most of the children are vulnerable or orphaned, cared for by extended family. With the extra burden placed on already big families, most orphans do not have the opportunity to attend school and are part of the modern exploitation against children. Standard and quality of education in remote areas are very low, up to 100 pupils per class.

PRAYER POINTS for Chisopi School

  • Pray for protection for the head teacher and wisdom as he leads a Christian school in an Islamic area.
  • There is a high level of staff turnover due to various reasons. Pray they may overcome the challenges and that there will be enough teachers.
  • Pray for the plan to set up a shop at Chisopi School to help with sustainability.
  • Pray for every child to have a pair of shoes and a jersey.
