Victor Hugo said : ” He who opens a school door, closes a prison “. Such a prison is not confined to a literal meaning. Its figurative sense can be elucidated through the following words from Ellen White :
“True education means more than the pursuit of certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to humanity. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental and spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come” (Ellen White 1995:11).
Advent of the idea to create Adventist Parents schools
Since some decades ago, the number of Seventh-Day Adventists in Rwanda was far outgrowing the schools under the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, and it proved impossible for these schools to accommodate all Seventh-Day Adventist Children. Some parents chose to send their kids to Seventh-Day Adventist schools in neighbouring countries(Uganda,Tanzania, Congo,etc.) so that they could keep their faith.
