HIDDEN TALENT IN FRAGILE PLACES

In response to God’s invitation, over the last year, we have increased our efforts in building the next generation of leaders ready to transform Africa.

Following His leading, we have trusted in God’s goodness and have seen His faithfulness this month.

Out of 48 test takers, ~10% of our students from The Leadership Academy of South Sudan (LASS) scored perfectly on the Uganda National Exam— 20 out of 20—the equivalent to a perfect SAT score in the United States!

Until this year, our school’s top score was 18 out of 20—achieved by Bismarck Yengi in 2016, one of our top alums and a recent law school graduate. 14 LASS students broke this record with a score of 18 or higher on the national exam. Overall, this class’s average score was 15.4—a significant increase over the last graduating class’s average score of 9.5.

Those who scored 15 or higher are almost guaranteed a full-ride scholarship across universities in East Africa. Those who score a perfect 20 are likely to get a full-ride scholarship to some of the best universities in the world.

To put it into context, about 98,000 students sat for the exam, with roughly 230 students receiving perfect scores. Our five students make up 2.2% of the perfect scores in all of Uganda.

Comparatively, these test scores place LASS in the top three schools across all of Uganda.

This month, we are excited to build on that momentum as we welcome the largest incoming class in LASS history, with 56 students across 25 tribes.

 

MEET THE FABULOUS FIVE

THE STUDENTS WHO MADE THE PERFECT SCORE

 

BUILDING A PIPELINE OF IMPACT & INFLUENCE

These remarkable achievements are particularly impressive given that some of our students did not perform well academically before attending LASS.

The success of our students is a testament to what happens when kingdom stewards unite and invest in hidden talent in fragile-state nations. The Lord raises the meek and humble.

As one of our students, Stella Eunice John Comb, remarked, “I never thought I could achieve so much academically—the beginning of my academic journey was difficult. I was one of the worst-performing students. I am forever grateful for the opportunity that 4africa presented to me and will carry the lessons I learned here for the rest of my life.”

Stella is one of our two female students to receive a perfect score on the Uganda National Exam.

After LASS and university, our leadership programming propels alums into areas of influence and impact. For example, two of our LASS alums, Ajwok Mary and Abdu Asumani, joined the prestigious African United Nations Youth Delegate, a program designed specifically to increase the representation of African Youth at global platforms—including the United Nations General Assembly.

When we dream of our students’ impact, we dream big. We dream that a future president of South Sudan will be a graduate of LASS.

The reality is: God’s dreams are bigger, and the future of Africa lies with those who will humbly partner with the Lord.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers as we walk in obedience to the Father!

Join us in celebrating what the Lord has done already and the journey our newest graduating class will take to glorify Him.
