Salt and Light Academy opens at Bright lights Orphanage!
Somerset West, SA
After 18 months of missions trips and reaching out to the children at Bright Lights in Somerset West, South Africa, we have teamed up with our partners in Cape Town, "The Salt & Light Academy" and launched a school program for the Bright Lights orphanage and kicked off with the first school day on the 18th July 2016.
We have started our education program with a group of 14 boys. Most are teenagers and have a very basic primary school level and little to no chance of being reintroduced into mainstream schooling. With those more advanced, we will be able to eventually place them into a conventional school or a school of skills where they can learn a trade for their future.
The boys will be taught Bible Ed; their identity in Christ; as well as general schooling of Math, English, Afrikaans, art and life skills.
The children are very eager to learn and are so thankful to have a chance at a better future.
