Impact Beyond Measure
Through our pilot programming, we have heard remarkable testimonies from school headmasters and local pastors about children and teachers who have responded to the Gospel and begun a life of discipleship.
- Children are growing in Christlikeness
- School enrollment, attendance and grades have increased significantly
- Violence, bullying, and even adolescent pregnancy have decreased
For every $650 you give, a public school in Africa will be equipped to share the Gospel and God’s Word with children today – and for generations to come.
“We feel at this time in Zimbabwe and across Africa we have an opportunity to impact a generation of millions of young people for Christ today! It makes my heart jump with joy, and I believe this could be a revival in the continent of Africa!” Stephen Maphosah
My name is Mapanzure Netsai and I am a teacher at Nyamazizi Primary School in Mt Darwin East. Since we started the Awana program we have seen lots of benefits to our school and community at large. Some of the benefits we have seen...We have built good relations between the teachers and learners. We see a lot of positive behavioral changes. Council time helped our learners to master some concepts as it integrates in our curriculum syllabus. Game time brings fun to the learners and it draws students to school. The problem of absenteeism was solved by this. Awana also brought unity among teachers, and even the school and the community. It helped us with discipline and gave us the tools to teach the Gospel of Christ.
I am Swema Cheure, a teacher at Date Primary school in Mt Darwin district. Awana has brought about positive behavioral change in our learners. Our learners are now disciplined in every way, especially language. They used to enjoy uttering vulgar words without any remorse, but now their language is superb. Introducing Awana at the school also helped erase absenteeism in learners. Our enrollment has now improved since the start of Awana at our school. Last year one clubber who couldn't read in class started reading memory verses and he became a good reader through attending Awana club which motivated our learners. We pray to see more changes as we continue to conduct Awana at our school.
My name is Bester Mateyanganga. I am a teacher at Karanda Mission Primary School in Zimbabwe. Awana has come as a tool to discipline and guide learners to the correct path. Our school is located in the hospital and near the growth point shops where a lot is happening. We have some learners coming from such a disastrous environment. Their behavior was unbecoming. Teachers were dumb-founded, they were running out of words to correct the learners. With the Word of God and Godly ways of disciplining children, we are experiencing great improvement in children's behavior and discipline at the school. We greatly appreciate Awana.
My name is Getrude Madhuku. I am a teacher at Chimumvuri Primary school in Mt Darwin in Mashonaland Central in Zimbabwe. Awana has done a lot at our school. It has improved daily attendance since pupils do not want to miss the Awana program. There is a behavior change in learners. They no longer use vulgar words like they used to. Pass rate in the religious subject improved since more content was covered during Awana time.
My name is Tinashe Meki. I am a learner at Katarira Secondary School in Zimbabwe. I used to hate other students but now I am a changed person through what I am learning in the Reach 4 Life program. I trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior last year. I’m now a peer educator instructing other learners how to fear God. My learning standard has improved quite a lot.
