changing the world by educating one child at time
The Project Lucas School
The Project Lucas School was founded in 2016 and currently hosts children from preschool through 6th grade in Ruiru, Kenya. Education is a key to ending the child poverty. It literally changes a child's life. Literacy is linked to higher employment rates and lower levels of poverty, crime, incarceration, and more.
By using education and incorporating the Gospel with consistent daily teaching of God’s Word, we believe children can escape poverty. Project Lucas believes that with the power of the gospel, along with a quality education and family involvement, children can be equipped with the tools they need to escape poverty. Many of our children that attend the school are recopients of the Margret Dishong Scholarship Fund.
The School is the heart of our ministry in Kenya, everything we do comes from this place—our sponsorship program, the backpacks program, our table banking program, and community tutoring and all outreach ministry. It is a special place where children and families know they can come and be loved, accepted, and not judged. It has become a beacon of hope in the community of Ruiru.
This is where our teams from the USA spend most of their time working, serving, and loving on our precious children. Because of its high profile location, the operation of the center can be very costly.
