Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our projects, due to strong competition, now need major funding for new start-ups. Our traditional way of starting small and building slowly is becoming more and more ineffective in the best "markets" for international schools. For-profit competition comes in well-capitalized.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are building up and using donations in such a way that the projects for which the donations are used, once established, pay back the funds to our "SEED Fund" and then we can re-use the money for more projects. Additionally, we are seeking funding through Donor Advised Funds, etc., that may also come to us as loans as well as donations.

We are appealing for donations and using those donations as investments in projects rather than just "spending" the money. Our projects tend to be self-sustaining once they are established and often have the ability to repay the funds used to get them started. We are also seeking funding from sources that loan funds as well as those who give donations.

We have used this system effectively now for some time; however donations have been small and limited in number. Our new fundraising campaigns are being presented as Kingdom investments, not just one-time donations. Our history and consistent growth in numerical and financial growth show that, with God's hand on us, we can have an agency that is not totally depend on sustaining effectiveness only through donations, but through effective investments and business-excellence in operations. What we lack is major donors.

We have established 17 international schools in 15 nations. We presently have around 4500 students who come from 120 nations enrolled in our schools. We have mobilized around 800 workers on the field (educators), most of whom we are able to provide their financial support. We have a worldwide operations budget of about $60 million.
