For the Children’s Sake Foundation has a strategic goal to develop National Trainers in various countries of Africa. These individuals are key to the growth and sustainability of quality Christian education in Africa.

God has blessed For the Children's Sake Foundation with talented, godly people to serve schools in their countries. We are so grateful for their passion and commitment and are excited to have the three following partners to help provide professional development seminars in Kenya and South Sudan.

Meet our Teacher Trainers:

Violet malongo Nyamiwa
kenya

Violet has a great love for the Lord and a deep passion for the power of Christian education. She became acquainted FTCSF when Dr. Nancy was a visiting lecturer at the college where she taught Christian Education. Violet has since left the college and is working with us, spending her time training teachers at Christian schools throughout Kenya. She is very effective at communicating ideas in a culturally relevant way, and in relational follow-up with teachers and directors at schools where she has done training.  She prays to eventually open a Christian "laboratory school" to showcase excellent teaching and provide internships for Christian school teachers. 

David acellam Okeny
south sudan

David is from Juba, South Sudan. He trained at university as an engineer, then earned a seminary degree from Westminster Theological Seminary in Uganda which is where he met Dr. Nancy. David is the Principal of Grace Theological College outside of Juba, South Sudan. He is currently awaiting his post-graduate certificate in Christian Education from African Reformed Theological Seminary, where Dr. Nancy now teaches. David has a great enthusiasm to train the Christian school teachers in Juba and other parts of South Sudan. Through his church and ministry connections, David is able to provide teacher training to Christian schools, even those in refuge camps.


“If we don’t train our teachers they won’t reach our children for Christ. So we need to start with our teachers... We start in a very small way, but it will grow. And it will transform Kenya. That is my passion and my prayer.”
