According to UNICEF, approximately 57 million children of primary school age are not in school and about 28.5 million out of this statistics are in Sub-Saharan Africa alone. The students who have discontinued their education have might been stricken by poverty.
In order to provide indigent students basic education, the InnerCity Mission School facilitates them a direct platform.
Through this platform, InnerCity Mission provides free education to pupils who cannot afford expensive knowledge at branded schools. Along with this, pupils are provided three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and take-home dinner), textbooks and notebooks with spiritual enlightenment.
This help children nourish their childhood under the light of Jesus.
Here is what the InnerCity Mission Nursery and Primary School believes:
“To take the divine presence of God to the deprived, excluded and vulnerable children living in the “inner cities” of our world; giving them a hope and a future through innovative teaching and learning”.
“To establish schools that integrate Christian values with quality innovative teaching and learning. Educating each indigent child to excel spiritually and mentally; and equipping them with the social skills necessary for growth into responsible, self-reliant adults that are of benefit to the society.”
The InnerCity Mission Schools have initiated a number of programs in order to empower childhood of indigents so they can lead a successful life.
Take a look at the programs driven by a noble mission of educating poverty-stricken students under the tutelage Lord Jesus:
The InnerCity Mission School has a special program termed as, The B.R.I.G.D.E Program. It is an academic program that boosts the morale of “late-starter” and facilitates a seamless reintegration to a student who lacks the opportunity to continue their education and quit in the middle of it.
