Training and sending out church planters across Africa in a sustainable way, to bring socio-economic development into the areas in which they minister. Supporting communities through the provision of education, support and aid.


Our ministry partner, Hope for Africa Mission, is based in Siyabuswa, a town in Mpumalanga, South Africa. From there, they run the continent-wide ministry which is changing the lives of hundreds of people across large areas of Southern and Central Africa. Their aim is to help in starting up successful projects including church planting, income generation, and then handing them over to local leadership. This model ensures sustainable development within the communities they support.

Children are either day students or boarders, particularly for those from more distant locations. Parents who are able, pay fees which enables needy children to attend the school for free.

Covid-19 Emergency Response

Covid-19 response became an unexpected but far-reaching challenge during 2020. Initially for Grace School in operating during lockdown by facilitating on-line access (not easy when many have no access to on-line devices of any kinds) but recently children have been able to return to classes albeit socially distanced ones. Over spring-summer 2020, food security and combatting hunger in the wider community was a major focus.
