Second grade, here we come!

This January, Shade School began a new school year! We added a second grade class and enrolled over 60 new students. Will you help to meet our students’ needs?

Shade School is Thriving

In January of 2022, Shade hit a major milestone, the launching of Shade primary school!

Shade School opened its doors for preschoolers two years earlier but required multiple buildings and government approval to include primary grade students. We are excited to now be offering five grade levels, beginning with a baby class of three-year-olds, a middle class (age four), a pre-unit class (age five), and primary grades one and two. Our plan is to grow the school year after year, continuing to add classes until we have a complete primary school.

In addition to the core subjects of English, Math, and Science, students participate in music, art, Bible, and sports classes. Students are also provided with two healthy meals each day and scholarships are available to vulnerable families and students with albinism.

Shade School is key to actualizing the vision God gave for holistic care to vulnerable children. We believe that education is foundational to poverty alleviation and setting children on a path towards their destinies.

Wonder why you see few children with albinism in our photos? Read the strategic plan for our school here.
