...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.
Excellent and Equitable Education
The Judson School opened in the summer of 2022 to serve the Judson Mill Community of Greenville, South Carolina. Funded entirely by New Way Global, the Judson School is an innovative, community-based school.
76% of all children in Judson Mill live in homes earning below the poverty line placing Judson among the lowest 1% in America.
Core values of the school include whole-person formation, high expectations, a loving and nurturing environment, and an emphasis on STEAM learning. The Judson School provides a state-of-the-art outdoor learning lab where children connect with their environment.
The Judson School is a model for a network of future micro-schools across the state of South Carolina serving minority and low-income kids.
