Over 25 million people worldwide have been forced to flee their homes and seek safety as refugees. Civil war, bloodshed, and famine can be attributed as the main causes.
Many refugees end up living in makeshift camps in neighboring countries where living conditions are abysmal. Here, they face a lack of hope, opportunities, resources, and purpose.
In many countries, we provide Christians who have lost everything with a second chance–a chance for an education that both draws them closer to God and helps them in their health and finances.
We are partnering with pastors inside refugee camps throughout Africa to start schools using the N2NCU International Extension Program.
Education is a key component in God’s restorative plan within refugee camps. Students within our program find renewed hope as they study the Word of God, draw closer to Jesus, and realize that they have a big calling in His Kingdom.
With a hope-focused mindset, students are given an empowered vision to use their new knowledge to create opportunities. Some have even been hired by the United Nations and other humanitarian groups as leaders in their communities.
We have seen that new success is always met with open doors for the Gospel.
“I never thought I would have the chance to get my degree here in Kakuma; this tells me being a refugee is not a shameful act.”
“N2NCU was a second chance to study and go higher in knowledge. This degree that I have received from N2NCU has brought great joy to my heart, and I bless the name of the Lord for this achievement.”
