When C.A.R.E. Africa started we became aware that many of our children were failing classes at their local school. We made the decision to move our children to a better private school.  Two years later we hired teachers to provide special tutoring and lessons. We even pulled some of our children out of school and provided them with one-on-one teaching.  We made the hard decision to have some of our children repeat the grade they were failing.  After all our efforts we still had children who could not read, do basic writing and were completing math at a very low level.  It became evident that we needed to start our own school where we could make certain our children receive the education they so deserve.  

We are excited to announce that in September of 2018 we will open Foundations Academy Egbe.  This school will be a partnership with Foundations Academy in Jos, Nigeria.  Foundations Academy was founded by a Nigerian, Bayo Oyebade and his American wife, Mary Beth.  Their initial ministry to people living with HIV/AIDS led them to orphan care and with Mary Beth’s teaching background, she quickly realized the need for a better school for their orphans. Foundations Academy opened its doors in 2010 and with their reputation for excellence, it has grown to two locations. Our school in Egbe will become the third Foundations Academy.  

This September we will start classes with 30 C.A.R.E. Africa primary age children.  We will open our nursery level to the community, but we want to ensure our school has a solid foundation before we open the remaining grade levels to the public.  This means we will not have the income from school fees to help offset costs for the first year. We need to raise $7,000 for our start-up costs and $12,000 for one year of operating costs. We have a lot of work to do to get the Center ready by September. All our classrooms need repair work, paint and decor. We need books for our library, student desks, teacher desks, computers, teaching materials, whiteboards, musical instruments, art supplies, ceiling fans, lights, water, fuel for the generator, training for our teachers, a playground, and an industrial printer in addition to so much more. 

Please invest in the future of these children by helping us meet our goal of $19,000.
