Niger Scholarship Opportunity
For the past 4 years members and friends of Hebron Presbyterian Church have been funding scholarships for children in Niger. Starting with 23 children in 2017, donations increased so that 63 children were sponsored in 2020. It has always seemed miraculous to donors that $200 sends a child to school for an entire year, but what the Evangelical Church of Niger [EERN] did with their resources in 2020 was incredible. Despite the pandemic, extensive flooding, and government requirements that one school provide expanded classroom space, the church moved forward with its Christian schools outreach.
The network of schools run by the EERN includes a boarding school at Tibiri and two day schools, one in Dogondoutchi and one in the capitol, Niamey. In 2020 Hebron also sent donations to help build additional classrooms in Dogondoutchi. Families enthusiastically returned to the re-opened school in the spring of this year. Wherever they were used, the scholarships provided schooling and food for hungry students and their families struggling with the effects of the Covid pandemic.
Hebron has been very inspired by its partnership with the child education mission and evangelism of the EERN. This partnership is faciliated through Frontier Fellowship, a missionary organization that sponsors Christian missions around the globe. We have so much and they have so little. Please prayerfully consider supporting this mission opportunity again in 2021. Any multiples or portion of a $200 scholarship would be such a blessing!
