Educating the Mind

For any society to grow and flourish, formal education must be made a priority, and it must be made available to all. Many indigenous peoples, however, like the Pygmies of Congo, Burundi, & Rwanda, are not afforded the fundamental right to education for their children.

Education is a powerful tool for social and economic empowerment. In communities where we support education, we intervene to address the most inhibiting barriers progressively. In Congo's Mugunga Community (near Goma town), the most significant barrier was the lack of a school in the vicinity. We built a school in 2011 whose enrollment has now surpassed 700 children. The children receive formal education from trained local teachers and a meal to support their nutrition needs.

Educating the heart

In our holistic approach to ministry, we acknowledge that the most incredible seed we can plant is God's word, and the greatest hope we can give is the hope of eternal life. We, therefore, share God's love and disciple believers to be rooted in Christ.

Our organization ministers to people from diverse cultures. We do not look at different cultures from one's experiences and background. To preserve the cultural heritage of all indigenous people, PIPES International uses the Bible as the sole grid to teach and make disciples of Jesus Christ. We are in the business of sharing the gospel and bringing people to God's kingdom.

Educating the spirit

PIPES partners with local churches to grow disciples of Christ in their communities. We help develop relevant discipleship material used in the local context and translated into local languages. Currently, our partners are studying the New Testament using the “Study the New Testament in One Year” workbook.
