Education has long been one of the four pillars of Harvesters’ evangelism efforts in South Sudan which include discipleship, education, health care and meeting the basic needs of orphans as well as vulnerable women and children. The purpose of our Education program is to develop a cohort of well-educated Christ followers who will serve as the future leaders of South Sudan and Uganda. In order to accomplish this, we focus on the wise, promising and dutiful cultivation of learning along with the development of academic skills and godly character through 3 onsite primary schools serving more than 1,000 students.
We also offer scholarship opportunities for Secondary, Post-Secondary and Technical Training for both our orphans as well as deserving children from the community. These opportunities are made possible through our Hannah Scholarship Fund which was established in 2008. With the first group of 17 students, we saw the potential that was available and exemplified by Hannah, who was a great woman of prayer. By pouring out her heart to God, He filled her and met her desire for children. Like Hannah’s children, our children are a gift from God and it is our privilege to care, guide and train them for the next phase of their lives.
The number of students eligible for our Hannah Scholarship Fund has grown substantially from our first 17 students in 2008. In 2023 the number of eligible students has nearly tripled to 62. Likewise, the necessary financial resources to support this program have also grown substantially.
We need to raise the funds to make this possible. Will you join us? An investment in the Hannah Scholarship Fund will create a significant impact – one that is both immediate and eternal for these children. Your gift, no matter the size, is important and it is a wonderful opportunity for us to work together for the full coming of God’s Kingdom.
Gifts of any amount and frequency are accepted and much appreciated!
