Lifeway Christian Academies were opened in response to the devastating state of education in Zambia. They are designed to provide Father’s Heart sponsored children with a private Christian education. Characterized by low student to teacher ratios and highly qualified teachers, these private schools give the orphans we serve a solid academic base. Christian education is crucial to breaking the cycle of economic poverty that has plagued the country of Zambia for decades and to building a new generation of men and women who lead with integrity.
The teachers at our schools are well-educated and trained in the skill of teaching children. They long to see these children exceed the expectations of the slums where these orphans live. These teachers will spend individual time with students to ensure understanding and they have access to training seminars put on by teachers who travel from the US throughout the year.
In addition to Zambian senior leadership working on the ground in Lusaka each day, Family Legacy has developed the Lifeway Advisory Board, made up of American teachers and school administrators, to develop on-going teacher training and professional development strategies that we know will continually improve the level of education our students receive each day.
In Zambia, the opportunity to attend school is a privilege. Through the Lifeway Christian Academies, our sponsored children, who have long lived at the very bottom of society will now have the opportunity to breakout of the cycle of poverty and despair with a life-changing education. With new desks, school supplies, and devoted teachers available to them, these orphans from the bottom of society will now go on to become the doctors, lawyers, and politicians of Zambia.
