The Frankland Junior Christian Academy is a small school of approximately 65 students. It was founded by Pastor Timothy Wekesa and is maintained through the ongoing support of Jane and Gary Frankland. TMPI sends a monthly contribution to the Frankland Academy to assist with their operating expenses, specifically towards teacher salaries.
Pastor Timothy has faced tremendous challenges in finding classroom facilities for the 5 grades currently offered at the Frankland school. Their meeting house doubles as a classroom, one class meets in Pastor Timothy’s church and another in a neighboring church. The remaining students are taught in two rented rooms in a nearby carpentry workshop, a location far from ideal when the noisy power tools in the shop are being used.
In all classes there is a lack of desks, benches, books, and basic teaching supplies.
Currently Pastor Timothy and Gladys are fostering three 3 orphaned girls. Their support is dependent on the proceeds from their small tailor shop. They are praying for compassionate people who can provide funds to sponsor them.
