Edify was founded in 2009 as a 5013(c) non-profit organization. Since then, Edify has expanded to serve in 12 countries in Africa and Latin America.
Edify’s mission is to improve and expand sustainable Christ-centered education globally. We believe that a Christ-centered education that helps a child grow into a follower of Jesus with Christian values will transform the child as well as his/her family, community and nation. We seek to couple the Great Commission with the Great Commandment by proclaiming Christ while loving our neighbor through meeting the need for education.
Our highest priority at Edify is to improve and to expand Christ-centered education globally. In order to accomplish these goals, Edify subscribes to the following 7 core values: (1) Commitment to prayer, (2) Best idea wins, (3) All things done with excellence, (4) Christ-like service, (5) Applaud entrepreneurial spirit, (6) Operate with high integrity, (7) Be joyful, be thankful and have fun!
