CHILDREN'S LITERACY PROGRAM

Poverty often has a dramatic impact on children's literacy. The impoverished rural communities around the Quessua Mission are no exception. Most of the children in these villages have no access to government schools. With support from the Alumni Association of Quessua (AEAQ), the Florida Conference, and the Angola Memorial Scholarship Fund (AMSF), every week High School students of the Quessua Boarding House take education to the villages of Mufongo, Kula Muxito, Mangas, Cassusina, and Terra Nova. New classrooms have been built in each vilage for this purpose. Advance #100090

 

QUESSUA BOARDING HOUSE

Several students of the Boarding House cannot afford to pay for living expenses and school tuition at the Quessua High School. These students come from the most remote and impoverished areas of the country. Donations from churches in the Florida Conference provide support so that these students can receive appropriate nourishment while being educated in Quessua. $50 will support a student at the Quessua Boarding House for a month. Recipients of this scholarship "pay it forward" by providing literacy classes for children in the villages around the Quessua Mission. Advance #100125
