The specific mission objectives of Pace Academy Foundation will be to:
Teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Train, equip, and empower Christian students so that they may live out their calling to make disciples of all nations
Provide opportunities for high-quality, Christian education to the most disadvantaged, Christian students
Provide sound, theologically-trained mentors that will teach, shepherd, and counsel the aforementioned students
Provide scholarships to Christian students so that they may continue to pursue quality, Christian education
Establish a safe, Christian community for disadvantaged students
PAF is established with the vision of spreading the love and good news of Jesus Christ through quality Christian education, mentorship, and scholarship programs.
In the midst of COVID, while following health & safety regulations, PAF continues to support and provide for our scholars. More students and more schools have been reached out to join PAF while more donors also endlessly show support for our dear scholars. As of June 2020, we are supporting 120 schools, 891 students.
PAF begins working alongside various organizations throughout Malawi to provide funding for different needs, including: feeding programs, constructing a cafeteria for underprivileged students, building churches, supporting local churches and missionaries, prison ministries, etc. PAF also begins supporting ministries outside of Malawi, including a seminary in South Africa and other non-Malawian missionaries.
Even during the pandemic and eventual re-establishment of society, our on-field team made sure to help our students with their health and education safely. We are happy to announce the construction of Pace Academy Community Center which you can learn more from on its page. We came back to Malawi in July for our long awaited 2022 summer retreat. As of August 2022, we are supporting 174 schools, 1750 students.
PAF launches its PaceHope scholarship program and begins to identify and accept applicants in Malawi for sponsorship. PAF expands its staff with a team of Malawian pastors and mentors who provide biblical mentorship and pastoral care for the students as well as oversee day-to-day operations on the field.
PAF holds its first annual summer retreat in Malawi in collaboration with other ministries. PAF continues to expand its scholarship program to support over 500 students with the help of its growing staff and many donors.
PACEHOPE Scholarship Program
PaceHope Scholarship Program was launched in July 2018 on the conviction that community support, through provision of scholarships, could bring secondary (high school) education within reach for hundreds of thousands of Malawian students who, otherwise, would not have those opportunities. Today, we continue in these efforts to make educational success a possibility for all students. PaceHope Scholarship Program aims to support hundreds of scholarships and education assistance programs across the nation of Malawi. As of 2021, we have supported over 1180 secondary school students.
Our long-term goals are to:
Develop an ongoing PaceHope Scholarship Program that will continue to gain support for future generations to come, by touching the lives of the current generation
Expand the reach of the PaceHope Scholarship Program
Expand the program beyond post-secondary education
Develop and publish Christian literature for the Christian church in and outside of Malawi
Establish a support program for teachers and educators
Develop a Christian library and resources center
Create jobs and provide employment to operate the programs
To spread the love and Good News of Jesus Christ through quality Christian education, mentorship, and scholarship programs.
