Transformation Through Education
Twenty-five years of war in northern Uganda and sixty years in South Sudan have torn apart the social fabric of generations. Existing schools are sometimes far for children to walk and have a 100:1 student-teacher ratio. Additionally, the lack of access to safe water in schools increases the potential for disease, some children must choose fetching water over education, and early marriage and poverty are prevalent. All of these factors derail children’s education and are demoralizing.
Favor’s community development model has been informed by over 20 years of work and recognizes the church and the Word of God as the center of sustainable, ongoing community development. We strongly believe that every child should have the opportunity to survive and thrive in education.
