Favour Primary School

“Train a child in the way he should go, and he will not depart from it.”

The mission of Favour Primary School is to educate the next generation of Uganda’s leadership on the Word of God, prayer, and academic excellence. Our school of 350-400 elementary grade level students receives kids from all walks of life, religions, and income levels. We openly teach and practice the Word of God, and these amazing young men and women routinely come to know the love of Jesus as they pray and see God move.

Whole families have come to know Jesus through Favour Primary, but even more importantly, these young men and women are building a foundation for lives of fruitfulness for generations. They are the future Godly leaders we pray for to rebuild and reform their cultures along God’s agenda.

We strongly believe that every child should have the opportunity to survive and thrive in education. The school has gained a reputation of excellence, some of our students have scored the highest in the Gulu district of 160 schools. We prayerfully accept creative tuition payment plans for families who aren’t able to pay tuition expenses up front. Favour Primary gives impoverished children the opportunity for education, and uniquely provides a Biblical foundation of ethics, morals, and spiritual growth.

Innovating New Biblical Curriculum

Uganda’s education system is notoriously focused on rote learning to the exclusion of all other types. Favor’s primary school in Gulu, Uganda, not only serves the community with tuition assistance and a Biblical environment with loving staff, but the school provides an outlet for better contextualized curriculum to train students with academic excellence. The “Roots to Fruits” curriculum developed for the nation of Uganda to expand and excel its educational foundation in the primary grades is in use at Favour Primary so that thousands of other schools can follow suit when the “fruit” is proved.

You can support a child’s tuition for only $40 monthly, or you and a friend can support a missionary teacher’s salary for only $125 monthly each! These funds provide the education post-war communities need to rebuild. The loving classroom, supplies, and meals you help provide lead to transformed leaders who will transform nations.

“They wanted to cross the water, so what did they do? They cried to Moses, and Moses cried to God. God said, ‘Raise the rod.’ What happened? The waters parted. They walked on dry ground. But now when Israel was ready to take the Promised Land of Canaan, did God say to Joshua to raise the rod? What did He say? ‘Put your feet in the water!’ It was a different tactic. You better hear God for every battle. The first battle it was ‘Raise the rod.’ The second battle, ‘Put your feet in the middle of opposition, and I will give you the land of Canaan.'”

Current Favour Primary School Initiatives

Building a New Primary School in Gulu, Uganda

We are moving from a rented facility to one owned by the ministry, which will reduce operational expenses and increase the quality of the building for avour Primary needs, and allow us to become a city testing center instead of having to send our students to other facilities.

A Word from Favor

“You want God to do the impossible? Put your feet into the impossibility, and watch God divide the water… You watch God do the supernatural, but go step on it. Go step on it.”
