Brazil – Christian Day School – BRA002

$50.00$1,000.00

The Melvin Huber Institute in Fortaleza (Northeast Brazil) is a Christian day school that provides educational supplement and spiritual and social development to children from abusive, neglectful, and poverty stricken homes. Named after pioneering missionary and church planter Melvin Huber, the school has been in operation since August, 2009 and is operated under the auspices of the PAZ Church in Fortaleza.

There are currently about 140 children enrolled, between the ages of 7 and 14. As resources become available the program will expand to serve more area children. There are always many more applications than the school can accommodate and a rigorous approval process must be applied.

The Institute currently holds two 4-hour sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Besides basic academic reinforcement, classes are also given in English, dance, music, and painting. Spiritual guidance includes Bible classes, times of prayer, and coaching in spiritual life and character development. Each session serves two meals to the kids, a very important supplement to the impoverished lifestyle most of these children lead at home. Partnerships with local doctors provides much needed medical attention while an in-house dental program awaits funding for equipment.

Computer skills and a working knowledge of web and electronic resources is essential for success in today’s world. The Institute is poised to add Digital Inclusion to their curriculum, but currently lacks the necessary computers. This project is directed to the acquisition of ten student computers at a cost of $850 each (total $8,500).

The Melvin Huber Institute actively intervening in the lives of needy and at-risk children in Northeast Brazil. Academic reinforcement, meeting of physical needs, and spiritual/social/character development are packaged in a loving environment to steer them in a new and positive direction in life. We invite you to help us make a difference in the lives of these precious ones.
