Mursi Education Pilot Programme
Amount Raised $0.00
Team Goal $0.00
SIM has been ministering to the Mursi in South Omo since 1989. After many years of resistance, with the invitation of the community and the government, SIM started a lower primary school as a pilot project several years ago. Since then, the Mursi have been growing both in their understanding of their world and their God and many Mursi have been freed from the fear of the spirit world and know freedom in God. They are beginning to participate in their regional and local issues. From the hundreds of students who have attended, several graduates have been accepted in a government boarding school for further education. The succesful establishment of the school is additionally assisting other SIM development projects and spiritual ministries in the area as more and more people are educated and are able to participate in the work for the glory of God in the Mursi community and neighbouring people groups.
