Eternal Investment : Education on a Remote Pacific Island

Children in the Marshall Islands must pass a High School Entrance Exam in order to continue their education past the 8th grade. 40% of that Exam is in English, but depending on the island, only 20% - down to as low as 2% - of the children can pass basic English proficiency. It’s a seemingly monumental challenge that can severely hinder their chances at a brighter future. In the capital city of Majuro, Nel Nathan runs The Salvation Army’s After-School Program, which aims to tutor and assist kids in passing the Entrance Exam. But the program goes far beyond helping them pass just one test - it also provides community, activities, and an opportunity to share the love of Christ with all that attend. To learn more about the life-changing work that Nel and the other Salvation Army staff there are doing, check out this video. Thanks for watching.
