Bridges Academy is a Boarding School for the High School aged Orphans and Vulnerable Children of South Africa. Only 20% of their peers in the townships will graduate from high school, but Bridges Academy has a 100% graduation rate. Recognizing that orphaned children will soon become the adult leaders of South Africa, Bridges of Hope is committed to pro-actively investing in them now, so that South Africa can abound with bright, broad minded Christian leaders in the future.
In 2014 we are adding 16 new students to our roster, and we need sponsors for each student as well as extra funds to augment what our sponsors are able to donate.
Our mission statement for the boarding school is:
“To provide a safe and nurturing environment for orphans, while providing them with Christian discipleship and a world-class education, equipping leaders who will strengthen their communities and bring about positive change in their nation.”
These gifts will provide food, lodging, teachers and staff and curriculum for students at Bridges Academy!
