We are privileged at Faith Children’s Village to have our primary school on site to serve not only the young children of FCV, but also some of the children from the surrounding community.
Amano (Wisdom) Academy opened in 2013 and educates a total of 60 students in grades 1-7. Forty-four of these either reside at FCV or have parents on staff. Sixteen of our students are either orphaned or vulnerable and live in the surrounding village. Although most of those who live in the village of Kakolo are impoverished, many are in dire situations. We’ve taken time in chapel this year to encourage our students to have a heart for those who are most needy. We challenge our older students to seek out and help the younger ones in our school family. Those who excel academically are urged to tutor or read to those who struggle. We desire for our students to focus less on themselves and more on serving others.
At the conclusion of each term we recognize those students who attained at average of 85% or better in all of their subjects. In the government schools, students pass a given subject when they earn at least a 40%. We aim higher. We desire that our students excel and work hard. God has blessed them with the opportunity to learn and grow and achieve. At the end of Term 1, nearly half of our students were recognized and awarded for having an average of 85% or better. We are so thankful for these children who work hard and understand the value of their education. Congratulations to all!
