Only around 60% of kids who enter school in the Dominican Republic graduate from high school. Finances play a significant role in determining a child’s ability to stay in school, as the costs for uniforms, schoolbooks, and supplies alone can overwhelm a family’s budget.
Fountain of Life Christian School (FLCS) serves over 550 children in the impoverished area of Juan Tomás, Dominican Republic. FLCS is a Christian school under the sponsorship of the local church with the aim of evangelizing and educating the poor of the village. The teachers in this close-knit community create a safe environment, are dedicated to excellence in education, and share Jesus with students.
Administrators and local government schoolteachers send their own children to Fountain of Life Christian School, highlighting the caliber of the education and care received there. Many parents and children have become followers of Christ and joined the local church through this ministry.
Please pray for the Lord to help the teachers faithfully present the gospel of Jesus Christ and for the parents and students who are not believers to come to faith in Him and be drawn into the fellowship of their local church for discipleship and spiritual growth.
