unto the least of these

Feeding  Their  Minds

Police Officer, Pilot, Doctor, Teacher, Soldier, Nurse.....

Children everywhere dream about what they want to be when they grow up.  One of the biggest obstacles standing between the children in the village of Mpyupyu and their dreams is an education.  Help this generation weave their dreams and give them Hope for the Future.

Here, a local teacher took it upon himself to tutor the new students after school.  

They have set up their makeshift classroom behind the church in Mpyupyu.

After building a church to feed the village spiritually and a feeding center to feed the orphans physically, we decided to feed their dreams and began an 8 year commitment to the children of Mpyupyu.  

Children in Mpyupyu cannot attend school if they do not have a uniform and cannot pay the school fees.  This is about $30 for the year.  While this may not seem like much to us, it is an astronomical amount for many of the families in Mpyupyu.  As we prepare for back to school in the U.S. with new clothes, new backpacks and endless class supplies, would you consider providing a new future for a child?



Education Breaks the Cycle of Poverty

     There are many orphans in the village of Mpyupyu.   JFBC supports them through the feeding center which provides nutritious meals each day for sponsored children.  These meals mean the difference between life and death.  Besides preventing starvation, well fed bodies are healthier and able to fight disease.

     This is not a far away charity, Jackson First Baptist visits these children several times each year, and has seen the difference in their health and growth.  100% of the money received goes directly to the children's feeding and education.  







Three of our students in Mpyupyu passed their national exams and were able to continue on to high school. High School is much more expensive than primary school, especially if you are assigned to a high school far from your village. These students have been sponsored for three years of high school, but need sponsors for the 2023-2024 term.  

  • Lekeleni Simion

    She was selected to attend Katamba Secondary School and would like to become a nurse. She is an orphan and lives with her grandmother who cannot afford to send her to High School. Lekeleni's tuition and uniforms are $210 each year.

  • Nester Benson

    She lives with her mother and brother. Their father abandoned them many years ago. She wants to become a nurse. Her annual tuition and uniforms to attend St. Michael's Secondary School is $210 each year.

  • Francis Zebe

    He was selected to go to a high school in Blantyre and he hopes to become a journalist. Blantyre is about 60 miles from his home, so he will have to pay for boarding and meals along with the regular fees and expenses. While he is blessed with a father and mother in the home, and they are able to provide for his supplies, part of his food and transportation, they are still unable to provide the full amount needed. His tuition, uniforms and boarding is $690 per school year.


You can send a child to school for $30 and 100% of your donation will go directly towards

their uniform, school fees and supplies.

Early in 2018

This is when I asked Samuel why these children of Mpyupyu were not in school.

Rather than answer me, he asked them, "Who wants to go to school?"

(The children on the other side of the church all raised their hands also.)
