(t/a Eagle’s Nest Christian Primary School)

Eagle’s Nest Ministries’ vision is to impact education in disadvantaged areas by offering HOPE through Christian value-based education.

The School

The first primary school, located in the Wallacedene township on the outskirts of Cape Town, was opened in 2006. God has blessed the ministry and its many needs over the years but they still require public support. The ministry is a registered NPO and an accredited school with the Western Cape Education Department. An education of excellence is currently being provided to around 460 learners, ranging from grade R up to grade 7. All teaching is based on Christian principles and foundations

The Team

The ministry team is headed by Celia Goddard, founder and director, and our school principal, Mr Jamakanga, oversees 26 staff members. Most of our staff live in the surrounding community and we encourage them (with the help of generous sponsors) to further their studies in order to become the best teachers they can be.

The Mission

Our mission is to uplift communities by providing the children with HOPE and an education of excellence, irrespective of their social, religious or financial background. The stark reality is that most of the learners live in extreme poverty and many arrive at school with empty stomachs and lack the most basic necessities. In addition to educating the children, we try to meet these needs in various ways as best we can (like our feeding scheme etc). The long-term goal is to open more schools once the Wallacedene location is fully independent and we already have our sights set on the Klipheuwel community.

Your Support

The ministry values our sponsors and supporters as practically everything you see at the school has been donated by caring individuals and companies. Support from the public sector is vital for the ministry to achieve it’s goals as we have far outgrown our resources and rely on your help. There are many ways for you to get involved, one such is to “bless a birthday”. Some children have never had a birthday cake or gift in their lives so we make a point of celebrating each birthday with cake and a small gift. You can volunteer to bake a cake once a month or donate towards the modest gifts.

Visitors are welcome at the school (prior arrangement is preferred) as we love to share the work we do and the wonderful children that benefit from your support. A visit to the school will leave you changed forever as the children have a way of creeping into your hearts.

The children are our future, and without HOPE their futures are bleak. Eagle’s Nest Ministries uses God’s blessings to provide this hope through providing not just an education of excellence, but also a safe, loving environment for children to grow both academically and spiritually.
