Musawenkosi Christian School
Vacating the Mukhanyo Premises
Since 2010, a part of the grounds at Mukhanyo’s KwaMhlanga Campus has been occupied by the facilities of the Musawenkosi Christian School. Musawenkosi, which means the grace of God, is the name of a local Christian school. Now they are moving to their own premises and buildings not far away.
The school was the initiative of Prof. Flip Buys, the previous principal of Mukhanyo, together with other leaders, including Beth and Ed Rettig of North Carolina. The vision from the beginning was to be a quality Christian school, especially for orphans and vulnerable children.
Eight prefab classrooms and two wooden offices were erected on Mukhanyo’s grounds. Starting with 16 children, there are now over a hundred with many having graduated in recent years. Although the prefab facilities have been maintained as well as possible, wear and tear have taken their toll. A new premises was found close by and the construction of brick buildings is nearing completion, all funded by a group of American donors.
Pastor Jeremie Havugimana, Facilities Manager at Mukhanyo and Secretary of the Musawenkosi Board, says some 55% of the learners are orphans and vulnerable children. The new facilities will enable further growth to at least 200 children. God willing, this will happen soon, and the KwaMhlanga community will have access to a larger Christian school.
This Mukhanyo initiative has now come to fruition as Musawenkosi now leaves our premise for their own. We will miss the daily chatter of children, but Mukhanyo will continue to cooperate with and support this valuable sister ministry.
