The Saint John Vianney School has become a safe haven for children, those that are orphans and those from the poor Village of Malowa where the School is located. Many of the families from the Village are themselves physically unable to care for their children; these children become as desperate as those without parents. We cannot find it in our hearts to turn them away knowing they otherwise end up on the streets and suffer unspeakably as scared, vulnerable children with no hope. As a result nearly all have become a cherished part of our community.

Structured days peaceful nights

Under the loving care of the Sisters and staff, life is vibrant and structured. Formal education starts in Preschool and continues through Secondary School (i.e. high school).

A typical day consists of the matron helping the children get ready for morning prayers followed by breakfast. School starts at 8:30 a.m. with classes until lunch at 12:30 p.m. After lunch, the younger children have nap time while older students return to the classrooms. The children play games and other extracurricular activities in the afternoon after they complete chores. You might imagine nearly everyone loves soccer! Dinner is at 6:00 p.m. followed by recreation and evening prayer. Then it’s off to bed.!
