Expanding "School with a Purpose" Pedagogical model to Other schools

We are reaching more students than ever before

Our pedagogical model "School with a Purpose" focuses on each student's emotional, spiritual, and physical needs in addition to their academic development. This model has been refined and proven success over the 30 years Conviventia’s God is Love schools have been operational.

According to data from Colombia’s Ministry of National Education, 56% of students who start school do not graduate. Yet, 90% of students at Conviventia schools graduate. Of our 2021 graduating class, 46% went on to attend college, and 54% proceeded to vocational training – totalling 100% of graduates who now have a forward path out of poverty.

Our vision and prayer are to expand our influence and help other Christian schools empower their students out of poverty and into sustainable transformation by adopting our pedagogical model. Our goal is to begin this project by:

  • Assisting 15 Colombian Christian and secular schools serving youth living in poverty who are victims of armed conflict and/or are Venezuelan migrants.
  • Facilitating monthly school workshops and evaluations provided by an interdisciplinary team of Christian psychologists and educational psychologists
  • Strengthening the capacity of 500 teachers and school managers who will develop a higher awareness of their role in building a different future for their students, improve their teaching capacities, and design strategies that strengthen the schools' action in favor of students' integral development
  • Benefitting 4,500+ (total) students across Colombia with improved educational quality and a more favorable learning environment, resulting in a higher graduation rate, and a path out of poverty

To do this, we need to raise $24,000usd. We will be fundraising for this initiative at our Art of Education event on Sunday, September 25th, 6:00-8:30pm at the Archway Gallery. All funds raised will be matched dollar for dollar, making your donation twice as impactful.

We invite you to join us for an evening of art, fellowship, and a delicious assortment of Rose wines and other light red summer sippers combined with paired hors d’oeuvres, all expertly prepared by our professional sommelier.

Our guest speaker and Conviventia CEO, Missy Rose Christie, will share how God is working across Colombia through Conviventia, including our plans for expansion and the why behind it all.

We know Conviventia is an organisation anyone with a heart for helping the needy or Colombia would want to know about; so, please, invite a friend or two to join you!

Thank you so much for your continued support and prayers over Colombia and Conviventia, and for being part of the solution. We pray to see you this September!
