History and Background
Ebenezer Institute of Learning was established in 2008 when the Nkhoma Mission Hospital based in the rural area of Lilongwe, Malawi experienced a high turnover of staff due to lack of proper education facilities. The school started with 10 learners in 2008 and has significantly grown to 325 learners in the 2016/17 school year. Ebenezer is reaching out to children from hospital staff, all personnel working in all departments of the Synod based in Nkhoma and the surrounding impoverished communities around Nkhoma.
Class size is limited to 30 students with assistants in the Preschool through to Grade 2 classes. The school is slowly converting into a double stream, with two classes per grade, due to high demand and is expected to accommodate 600 learners by 2023.
Children who are enrolled from the surrounding villages come from extreme poverty stricken families whose parents hope to provide a better future by giving them a good education. Ebenezer is one such school which offer quality education at affordable fees and continues to enroll more students who live in poverty in the hope that they will be responsible to bring change in their communities.
The mission of the school is “building Christian character in children and exploring their intellectual capabilities by instilling basic biblical truth and imparting basic education principles that will enable them to excel with their education”.
The staff is dedicated and we have morning devotions every day. We are making a huge difference in the communities as a team. With God everything is possible and we will continue to trust in Him for our success.
Ebenezer, thus far God has taken us.
