Roots to Fruits Christian Curriculum
"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." -Albert EinsteinJoin the classroom
After months of visiting other schools and researching more about the Ugandan Education system, it was discovered that the system of education was strictly rote (memorization based on repetition) with the final goal being status on one test.
While adhering to the requirements of the Uganda National Curriculum, a Christ-centered curriculum has been developed to suit the methodology of building knowledge on knowledge to effectively teach critical thinking and comprehension skills for future learning, which develops a holistically educated child.
Over 27 schools are using the Roots to Fruits curriculum and the results are astonishing. Teachers have testified to the fruit that has come through child-centered learning. "This curriculum goes above and beyond passing exams. Our students gain lifelong knowledge and skills that are applicable in their daily lives."
Village Learning Centers
Teen pregnancy, child marriage, alcoholism, abuse-all factors in a village without Christ and without quality education.
Similar to that of a one-room schoolhouse, our Village Learning Center (VLC) focuses on bringing education to children who would otherwise have no opportunity. The parents of the children provide the buildings, and we provide the education.
Once rampant with alcoholism, the people of this area are now thriving as quality education and the love of Jesus have swept across the village. "My children are learning. I can see a positive change in them."
Sanctuary of Grace
An orphanage is what we had originally planned, but when asked what was needed in Ocuka village, the parents desperately responded, "Education."
A paradigm shift-from ROTE to holistic education, our teachers have worked hard to provide the pupils of Sanctuary of Grace with an education that will change the trajectory of their lives.
SOG is really where it all began. Out of a need for education in a village where there was none, Roots to Fruits and the Village learning Center were birthed. Today, this is a place of Jesus's love and a holistic education.
