We are so excited to announce that our 7th Project in the 2020 Vision is now open and sharing the love of Christ! Last February we broke ground in the small village of Iganga, Uganda on the school building and now 3 classrooms in the Pre-school and Kindergarden grade levels are open. They will add additional grade levels as they finish more classrooms.
About 14% of Uganda’s population practice Islam. Iganga District has the highest population with estimates between 75-80%. Opening a Christian Academy in the heart of a muslim village is a BIG DEAL! From the beginning I was excited about the concept that fee paying students from muslim families would help fund the teacher’s pay, which in turn will teach the children about Jesus Christ.
The first day of school was January 28th and they began with 16 beautiful children, some of which are from muslim families. We are excited to see how this project will have an impact on the lives of the children, and trickle back into their families with the message of the Gospel.
