Schools & Education


For families in the Democratic Republic of Congo, hope for a better future has been squelched. Decades of war have scarred the people, and the country has never fully recovered from the violence. The threat of more violence and war loom in the air. There is great need for hope within this country and within the people. The children of DR Congo are the leaders of tomorrow, and they are the children whom God cares about today. To offer hope to the future generations, we started a school in the Keredi slum of Bukavu, DR Congo in 2004. We serve and educate 650 children (grades 1-12) who would not have the opportunity to receive an education and hear about the love of God because of poverty that holds them back. Learn more


In 2006, ELI Sudan was started after Stephen Reech, a Sudanese man, returned to Sudan after the 20 plus years of war. For over two decades, the war-torn area of Bor has forced families to run for their lives. Devastation rolled through South Sudan as militant raiders from the North plundered and burned villages, killing parents and children alike. Families were split apart during flight, and some were blessed to find one another again years later in Kenyan or Ugandan refugee camps. Thousands of children have either not yet found their families or have received the unfortunate news that their families were killed during the war or died while fleeing across the country. ELI’s South Sudan School was started to help rebuild the villages that were demolished during the war and bring hope back to people. Our school educates over 300 children with the skills needed to give them a hope for a future. Learn more
