Special Projects

Teacher Development Seminars
Throughout the year we hold special seminars for the Christian school teachers on a variety of topics like discipleship, instructional strategies, classroom discipline, new curriculum, and what it means to be a Christian in the classroom.

Needs: The cost of a single seminar can be between $100 - $500 which pays for materials, meals and travel for the teachers. Additionally, we are looking for veteran teachers to come during the summer and add some much needed training.

Teacher Mentorship
How do we train teachers? When the Christian schools first started there were enough new teachers each year to hold a training school, but now we only need to train a few new teachers each year. This training can best be done through a mentorship with a veteran teacher and supplemental teaching seminars.

Needs: The number of new teachers who will need training varies each year, but the training costs and living expenses for one new teacher amounts to only $80 per month for one year.

Long-Term Christian School Ministry Partnership
The Association of Christian schools is composed of a great group of Togolese men and women who have been working hard to strengthen the schools in order to spread the gospel, make disciples of Jesus, and provide excellent education.

Needs: First of all we need your prayers because only God can fulfill our vision, and we find Him faithful to accomplish beyond what we even imagine. Second, we need more people: anyone who can build a schoolhouse, teach kids, train teachers, write curriculum, or any of the thousand things it takes to make a good school. Finally, we need committed financial support to pay for the expenses of the Association of Schools. The schools continue to need additional buildings, desks, curriculum, and supplies.

Music Ministry
We started working with an association of church musicians in Kpalime. They are conducting a volunteer ministry of providing lessons and instruments to other churches who need assistance.

Needs: They need your instruments that have been sitting in the closet. Guitars, keyboards, trumpets, trombones, baritones are welcome even if they are missing parts or not working. They also need funds to purchase or build music stands, repair and maintain instruments, and buy replacement parts and accessories like new guitar strings. $15 gets them packet with 3 sets of guitar strings and $20 pays for a music stand.
