Loving God’s Children — Teaching Christ’s Truth

The Lion of Judah Academy (Simba wa Yuda Academy in Swahili) is a private Christian primary and secondary school located in Bulima, Tanzania, East Africa. Its main goal is to provide an excellent but affordable education to the children of Tanzanian pastors, church workers and Bible college students, as well as to orphans and other disadvantaged children.

The school is a rich and vibrant academic and Christian community with nearly 850 students and 100 teachers and support staff.  It is one of the outstanding schools, public or private, in the nation of Tanzania.  It is a “city set on a hill.”

Most Tanzanian pastors and church workers are not salaried and receive only modest stipends for their work.  As a result approximately one-half of Lion of Judah Academy students come from situations where their families are unable to afford the cost of the education they are receiving.   The Student Sponsorship program is of vital importance to our students.  God is working miracles and changing lives through The Lion of Judah Academy…we welcome your help in this great adventure.

The motto of The Lion of Judah Academy is:  “Training Leaders in Knowledge, Wisdom and Godly Character.”  Accomplishing that goal is what The Lion of Judah Academy strives to do every day.
