Student Sponsorship

We are educating the next generation of Swazi children.

Sponsor a Child's Education

Why become a Student Sponsor? 

Education is at the heart of our mission in Eswatini. With your help, we can provide the highest quality of educational resources to our children and raise a generation filled with HOPE! 

Students Enrolled for 2024

Pay for a child’s education at Project Canaan for $85/month or $1,020 for the year, and you can help break the inter-generational cycle of poverty in Eswatini.


Our students, though quite young, seem to fully understand that getting an education is very important for them. They are amazing, so disciplined and always positive.

Project Canaan Academy

Our school is a Christ-centered learning environment, from preschool through grade 12, that is specially designed to empower and inspire students to develop their potential intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The Project Canaan Academy mascot is a lion and his name is Aslan, of course!

In 2022, 75% of our students improved in Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) testing, and our school had a 100% promotion rate. Our students are loving robotics, the life skills program, fine arts and the sports programs. There are 323 students currently enrolled for 2024.

The school is designed as a Christian learning program that serves a diverse range of students including orphans and vulnerable children. The majority of these students have been in the care of Heart for Africa (Canada) since they were infants at Project Canaan. The school implements a hands-on, project-based approach to instruction. We adhere to a philosophy that addresses the needs of the whole child as well as practicing current, research-based education with an emphasis on Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory. MI theory is a way of explaining how children learn, emphasizing the diverse abilities of children and the need to assess learning using multi- dimensional evaluations. Our plan is to carefully monitor and support growth in each of these facets. We have a commitment to train the solution-seekers and leaders who will bring positive impact to Eswatini, Africa and the world.


Project Canaan Academy gained accreditation through the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa.

Children living in poverty are less likely to receive an education and can experience physical and cognitive delays. Poverty, and the stress that comes with it, has been shown to negatively impact a student’s ability to learn and succeed in school (NASSP).

Multiple studies published since 1990, including the study from Stanford University and Munich’s Ludwig Maximilian University, have shown a strong correlation between education and economic growth. Education has been proven to increase income, improve health, and encourage the survival of families.

By working to provide education to orphans and vulnerable children in Eswatini, we are working to break the inter-generational cycle of poverty in Eswatini.
