Sponsor a child’s education
Invest in a child’s education for
just $34 per year
Jonathan’s House for Orphans in the Central African Republic (CAR) is thankful for the opportunity to operate the Eugene Rosenau Christian School, which has been named to honor the work of an early missionary to this region. We are thankful for the educational and evangelism opportunity that the school provides.
CAR has suffered through years of crippling violence and we believe that education is a critical part of enabling children to break from the cycle of poverty and violence so that they can realize their full potential. We currently provide an education to over 300 students in grades one through six. Grades one through three are in one building and grades four through six are in a neighboring building. All of the children from the orphanage attend the Christian School, and any orphan from the nearby town can attend the school for free. Orphans make up about half of our student roster. School hours are from 8 am to noon. All classes are taught in French, rather than Sango, because all higher education and government business in the country is conducted in French.
Due to our students’ high scores on standardized achievement testing, our school is highly regarded by the government and the neighboring town as an excellent institution. We are hopeful that we can someday have a school lunch program that will allow us to extend the school day until 3 pm if the necessary funding is available in the future.
