Crimson Academy Project Moves Forward

Press Release

January 8, 2010 - Gihara, Rwanda

Work continues on the construction or our second school, Crimson Academy, located at Gihara, Rwanda. Crimson Academy follows our initial school project, founded in 2006, for Maasai children at Orkung'u, Kenya.

For an update on the project visit www.crimsonacademy.com.

Crimson Academy, to begin with four classrooms, is scheduled to open in mid- 2010. The private Christian School will educate 100 marginalized Batwa Pygmy children. The vast majority of the underprivileged Twa children have never had access to an education. Each child will receive basic English, mathematics, health, science and Bible free of charge.

The goal of howFar is to raise up a generation of Christian Batwa leaders who will be trained and enabled to evangelize their indigenous "least-reached" people group. The Batwa inhabit portions of Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
