Hope for the Island Scholarship program is making a great impact on the lives of the students involved!
Our new batch of 25 students is now regularly attending school and has been productive according to the teachers’ feedback.
We have incorporated Math, English and Science classes as part of our after school program. This is helping students overcome a lot of learning barriers and associated anxiety. Many students were not excelling in the past and were dropping out of school.
Students not currently part of our Hope Scholarship, have approached our staff asking if they too can be part of the tutorial classes. These opportunities provide ways for us to develop the trust within relationships that is needed to disciple them effectively.
Scholars also clean our Hope for the Island property. We have also organized community service programs where they are learning to develop a heart of servant hood with a variety of opportunities to give back.
Our goal is to build connection with the students’ families so we can minister to them as well. As we respond in obedience to the Lord’s example of love and compassion, we know the right doors will open.
