We are thrilled to offer free schooling to many children in surrounding villages. Often teachers in public schools fail to deliver academic requirements fully to lack of resources, so we are thankful for the opportunity to teach them in a loving environment. It is such a joy to be able watch the children mature and excel in their talents.
The Gideons classes are full of children hungry to learn. There are over 350 children that attend our primary school and the majority of them are total orphans. Gideon's principles are to help the families in this community get a quality education for the betterment of their future lives.

The best thing about the kids here is that they are always jovial. They are at all ends of the spectrum which is really exciting. It gives us the opportunity to treat them as individuals. We know they’re created by Christ for a specific reason, and we get to work with their strengths and make them who they are.
