Thanks to the sponsorship and participation of the Presbytery of the Alleghenies, EduNations hosted its fourth annual golf outing on Monday, August 29 at Avalon Golf and Country Club in Sharon, PA.
EduNations is on a mission to ignite hope by comprehensively educating rising generations and to honor Christ in all we do. We are committed to educating the whole child in mind, body, soul, and spirit. When children learn, the lives of their families and communities are transformed. Through partnership with the EPC, many first generation believers have been born in the six remote villages where EduNations has schools. As part of the EPC’s Engage 2025 initiative, The Presbytery of the Alleghenies has adopted two of these remote villages — Rokassa and Fintonia.
With the Presbytery of the Alleghenies’ support, EduNations has been holding golf outings for the past four years, with proceeds from each fundraiser supporting the Senior Secondary Boarding School in Rokassa. This two-story school building in Rokassa enables EduNations students from all six remote communities to receive a quality high school education. In addition, students live in dormitories with the other boarding students and receive three meals each day.
The goal of this year’s golf outing was to support the feeding program for the students in the boarding school. This school year, over 300 students are receiving healthy, fresh meals every day. Typical meals consist of rice, groundnut, soup, fish, bread, chicken, eggs, and vegetables. Good nutrition is a key element of a healthy mind and body and critical to the education of every child.
Thanks to all who supported and participated in this year’s golf outing, EduNations raised $36,500! Thank you for feeding our students and fueling their learning! It takes a village…and we couldn’t do this without you. From all of us at EduNations, TENKI!
