Quality Education is the pivotal piece in Africa’s restoration. As children and adults learn how abnormal poverty, disease and hunger are, they can begin to dream and plan ways to move out of their desperate situations.
We are committed to educating children so that they can reach their fullest potential and be instrumental in reviving the economy and raising the standard of living for all Malawians. Our children are one of our greatest resources!
Each day the children receive two hot meals. Our school day begins with breakfast, then the children go to chapel. Classes begin by 8 am and lunch is served at noon. After lunch, children return to class for additional instruction. All our students have the opportunity to learn computer skills, play sports like soccer and netball in the community league and have access to our anemia feeding program.
Our Preschool program began in 2010 when local parents and the Grace Alliance Church decided it was important to begin teaching their small children. Two young women volunteered to teach 30 children. The response from the community was explosive. After just six months, more than 300 children were enrolled in the Grace Preschool.
In 2012, we opened the doors of Grace Primary school with our first Standard One class. In September 2017, we added sixth grade to our school. We will continue adding a grade each year through Standard Eight. (This is the equivalent of finishing elementary school). We plan to begin offering Secondary School courses by 2019. It is our vision to continue growing our education programs culminating with the establishment of Grace University. Watch the video below to see how excited the kids are that one day they will be university students!

We currently need to build 7 more classrooms. We deeply appreciate your help in accomplishing this goal. We have also partnered with Classrooms For Africa. You may want to take a look at their website!
