Reborn. Transformed. Made New.

Transformation is an important word. It’s a miraculous thing, actually. To be reborn and made new is amazing. There is a beautiful illustration of this in nature when a caterpillar emerges as a butterfly, but it is perhaps no more beautiful than when we see it in the lives of the people we serve.

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

—2 Corinthians 3:18

Transformation begins with God. He transforms lives every day. By leading people to trust in His Son, He brings them out of emptiness into new life and joy. This rebirth marks the beginning of a life of transformation.

He brings this about in many different ways. One of the most powerful ways is Christian education. It’s true that education in general is a powerful tool for change, but Christ-centred education has lasting impact both for today and eternity.

Education rooted in a Biblical worldview penetrates the heart and summons people to God’s call to repentance and transformation by telling the Biblical story. Teaching about creation and the fall, about good and evil, brings each student to a realization of God’s redemption of all things through Jesus Christ.  It reveals how they can be part of this grand story, impacting their families and communities with the message of the Gospel.  Christ-centred education permeates an outlook on life that cannot be separated from God, and therefore affects real, sweeping, everlasting change. Christian schools transform culture and play a vital role in strengthening the church and family, shaping and preparing the next generation of leaders. This is why we serve and it’s where we believe God has called us to do our best work.

For over 15 years, we have been striving to carry out God’s call to make quality, Christ-centred education available for children in developing countries. In that time, many things have changed, including our organization. Our core purpose, however, has not changed. If anything, it has been refined. We are just as passionate about Christ-centred education as we were many years ago.

This past year has been a time of great transformation for our organization. We are confident that you will embrace the things God is doing through us, and that you will share our excitement for our calling.

I invite you to browse the website and read the stories of transformation. Visit the get involved page to learn about the many ways you can help. We pray that you might be blessed by your participation as you are certainly a blessing to us and to those we serve.

Dear Brother,

I am Zeeshan Javed from Pakistan. I have studied your web site, and I found it the most wonderful site to get right to the True Word of God. My suggestion for you is to create your material in my language of Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi, Pashto, Sindhi, Sraiki, and Balochi also. It will bring lots of blessings of the Word of God for the Pakistani and Indian Urdu and Punjabi and other local languages speaking people. For that purpose, I as a translator will bring your material into my languages and into Indian language as well. I will be printing and distributing your material to my people around me. Although it will take your low expenses as well, as fund for the Word of God to reach out to the deserving people. I my self, work on a local radio station also. Many times it becomes difficult for us to keep doing this because of being minorities and because of the lack of the financial resources. I will wait for your response.

Sincerely yours

Zeeshan Javed
