...real change is possible when we think in a New Way.
Africa's First STEM Museum
We partnered with a visionary Ethiopian leader named Michael Alemu to establish the first STEM Museum (Science, Technology, Engineer-ing, and Math) on the African Continent. This five-story, state of the art structure includes an extensive computer lab and a children's library with more than 20,000 volumes. The Ethio STEM museum is currently developing a national STEM curriculum that will propel Ethiopia forward as a leader in Science and Technology development. The Museum and its programming has attracted National attention for its innovation and vision.
Collaboration across barriers
We created a dynamic collaboration between local businesses, churches and non profits, and public schools to create 10 learning pods for minority and low-income children. In less than six weeks we were able to raise more than $300,000 to fund the pods for the entire 2020-2021 school year. We have served more than 250 public school children in the Greenville, SC. This program will continue in the form of a summer education camp for children in the Judson Mill area of Greenville, one of the least-served communities in our state.
North Hills Church, of Taylors, South Carolina, was a major partner and organizer for this project. Several prominent businesses in the Greenville area also contributed significantly.
Raising up an army of tutors
The educational disruption caused by Covid during the 2020-2021 school year continues to effect students across all geographic and socio-economic segments of America. National studies and mountains of anecdotal evidence shows that effect is greatest among minority and low-income children.
New Way Global is partnering with North Hills Church in Taylors, South Carolina, to provide free in-school tutoring to elementary students at a local public elementary school. So far, around 350 tutoring hours have been provided.
This is just one of many ways North Hills Church supports educational opportunity in this school.
