Ramu Valley Academy | Madang, Papua New Guinea

In friendly cooperation with

STORIES 

These are those who are now reached. They are men, women, and children of the

Ramu Valley who need our help in making their vision a reality. 

"My name is Jojo and I live in a small corner of the Inapang tribe, which is located in a 3rd world country called Papua New Guinea. I am 13 years old and became a believer in Jesus Christ through missionaries who came to learn the Inapang language. I passed from the mission’s Bridge courses and entered into the PNG school system. Sometimes, we would go for weeks or months without a teacher. Sometimes we would then have to repeat the whole grade again. I have spent 2 1/2 years trying to complete Grade 5.  I cried many times because I just wanted the teachers to do the job they were being paid for. I wanted to learn. I wanted to become a doctor. I wanted to help people. But, now I just feel hopeless. I am happy to be a Christian and I know that when I die, I will go to heaven. But, what about my time here on earth? Does God have work for me? I am smart and I want to help others, but I worry about what my future will be like. If the Ramu Valley Academy becomes a reality, then I will be one of the first eligible students to attend and I am happy about this, but we can’t make it happen alone.  We need you.  Please help us make this dream come true."
