Child Scholar

Four aspects of our Mission

These are what we we are doing

International K12 education
One of Child Scholars missions
is to establish learning centers
in many nations of the world. In Nigeria, we are in the process of completing a school house - Veritas Scholars Academy. We hope to have enough capacity for 500 children at this school. In Kenya, we are partnering with Ngala school for the Deaf to provide education to these disenfranchised kids. We are working to establish partnerships in other countries including those in South America and Southeast Asia.
Higher education scholarships
Child Scholars has funded many
students in universities in Africa,
the US, and UK to propel many to unleash their God given potentials.
Vocational Skills Training
Partnerships with Vocational
centers to provide a pathway
for young adults to provide for themselves and their families. Emphasis on providing mentorship to individuals working in the medical field, agriculture and education.
Community Upstream Healthcare
Dr. Emmanuel Okenye founded
Child Scholars while he was in Medical School so there had always been a component of medical missions during our international trips. The goal is to improve upstream healthcare through addressing root causes for disease. We are focusing on primary disease prevention at the community level both locally in the US through our partnership with Thundering Water, an organization based in Roseburg, OR and internationally through our mission trips.
