The Seed Christian School (Ecole Chretienne La Semence)
On our recent visit to the World Outreach Christian School base in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, we participated in laying the foundation for the new classroom block that (God willing) will be added to this wonderful, God-glorifying place in West Africa.
The Seed School, established by WOI personnel, Janvier and Claudine Yokoinele, eight years ago, has a vision to reach unreached children and impact families through Christian education. It is doing this by providing godly and professional education to more than 90 students from diverse cultural and social backgrounds, with some from disadvantaged families needing subsidisation.
Over recent years, the school has had 100 per cent pass rate in the national exams for senior pupils, which has given it favour with government. Transformational testimonies are commonplace in these young lives as they are also taught godly character and principles.
The new building will provide extra classrooms for growth and expansion, enabling them to eventually revamp the existing building to provide more efficient facilities. It is hoped the new building will be ready for occupancy by January 2017. Please pray and support this venture. The teachers and staff are truly making a difference, training young lives who could potentially change a nation!
