Children Education Center
The Children's Education Center was established to provide quality childhood Christian education in an underprivileged region. We address the development of the whole child while inspiring creativity, hope, love and knowledge. The principle focuses of the Center and staff are on academics, spiritual growth, health and nutrition, as well as a child's social and emotional development.
It's been another busy and successful year (2017) in our educational programs. Our pre-school program just completed its tenth year! It's wonderful to see this program becoming established and witnessing the difference it makes to the lives of the wee ones and their families in our community.
A big focus this year was expanding our work inland. We’ve completed our brand new pre-school building five miles deeper into more remote villages. We plan to open this school in February 2018. A huge thank you to everyone who has partnered with us in prayer and finances for the current school and the new school. Please pray for continued favor in the communities where we work, for the provision of more teachers and for children's lives to be impacted by the love of God.

"The school was without doubt the best I have seen in Africa. The class sizes were small and they had both a teacher and a helper in each. Learning was student centric and fun. Teachers and helpers engaged the kids and cared for them. I was very impressed. While I had an opportunity to learn about each of the ministries they do at iReachAfrica, I was most touched by the walk I took through the local village to meet and interview parents and past students. What impressed me was the amount of connectivity that the school staff had with the families. They knew them by name and knew their stories. Teachers knew what challenges students had at home and were treating each student holistically through these relationships. One of the amazing additional programs this nursery school was engaged in was Alumni classes. Teachers had seen that students moving on into government schools were not getting the same level of care and that students were actually loosing skills. To combat this, the school started a weekly alumni class where graduates could come and practice skills. In the community I met families with alumni students and they confirmed the positive impact the team had made on their lives. I have been looking for a school for Joshua and Grace to start in and this little pre- school in the middle of Mozambique was just the ticket. Too bad this school is more than 2000 kms from home!"
