Place: Joy Christian School
Fisto Shimwa Ruboneka has been waiting 451 days for a sponsor.
Fisto lives in the Biroro Village and has two siblings. His Dad, Jean Pierre and mom, Louise are farmers and grow potatoes, cassava and bean crops to support the family. Fiston is always one of the first children to school and often waits for an hour until the gate is open. His enthusiasm to learn is contagious. He likes to identify farm animals such as horse, dog, cow, pig and hen, often times naming the animals in English on his walk home from school. He can add and subtract basic numbers. Fisto is kind and has any friends at school. He enjoys singing and dancing.
Joy Christian School gives families the opportunity for their children to receive a solid Christian start to their education.
Each child will need a sponsor to help pay for their education. A donation of $40/month partial sponsorship or $80/month full sponsorship will pay for will pay for school supplies, uniforms, teachers salary, and help with additional costs. Some students are sponsored with one share and just need an additional sponsor to join at $40/month. You can pay for one month at a time or pay for the entire year all at once. As a sponsor you will have the unique privilege to follow the growth of your student and pray for them.
One day Joy Christian School will have a boarding school that will have both poor and rich learning side by side. Joy Christian School hopes to be a training ground and model for many schools in East Africa. It will be a reproducible model easily duplicated in other communities.
