In 1977 Nigerian goverment took over almost all schools.
The results where devastating. Local Nigerians speak about a non-educated generation because of that. Good education is now rare in Nigeria.
Hillcrest1 is a mission school established in 1942. At first it focussed on giving education to the missionkids, but it oppened up its doors for local Nigerians later on. Because of the school fee needed to pay the skilled teachers, its only affordable for rich Nigerians. So it seems not very mission foccused on the first sight.
But there is an missionnnary aspect to offering education to rich Nigerians. Those are the future leaders of Nigeria. If you can give them Christian eduaction it can have a huge impact on the country.
Thanks to Hillcrest mission- and local kids can have good education.
