Reaching the nations for Christ through education
Cindi's Hope Academic Progress
Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
In The Beginning...
The first year that Cindi’s Hope Academy had its own facility, we began tracking student academic progress. Cindi’s Hope students outperformed Kenyan public school after the first year of the Direct Instruction curriculum implementation. Direct Instruction is a model for teaching that emphasizes well-developed and carefully planned lessons designed around small learning increments and clearly defined and prescribed teaching tasks. It is based on the theory that clear instruction eliminating misinterpretations can greatly improve and accelerate learning. (https://www.nifdi.org) Cindi's Hope has received support from the Engelmann Foundation to ensure that all students succeed. (https://www.engelmannfoundation.org) Please keep in mind, all Cindi’s Hope students in Kenya fall within the following categories: abused, abandoned, neglected, orphaned, and/or non-native English speakers. Below is a snapshot of the student’s academic progress the first few years.
2011 – 2015 Students Meeting Benchmark
2015 – First Fruits of Harvest
After learning the Kenyan primary-school education curriculum at Cindi’s Hope Academy, 18 children sat for their exams between 2015 – 2017 to attend high school. The student's secured positions in high schools from various parts of Kenya. Every year, Cindi's Hope Academy graduates students from Elementary and Middle School to be able to attend High School.
While the children are first rescued from their situations by the Kenyan government, they do not offer assistance or resources to Cindi’s Hope. Sponsored or subsidized education is offered at the Cindi's Hope Primary schools. Therefore funding must come from outside sources. Help us provide much-needed food, clothing, and infrastructure for Cindi's Hope Academy. We have set up several opportunities that make it easy for you to give.
