Our Vision Is…
To use Christian education as a tool for breaking the Cycle of Poverty that is commonly found in Tanzania
Like a maelstrom at sea, the forces of poverty are strong, consuming, and self-perpetuating. In Tanzania the cycle of poverty (depicted below) affects at least 68% of the population. Additional victims are impoverished every day due to a lack of educational opportunities. If left unchecked, poverty’s strong undertow will continue to overwhelm the next generation, leaving pain and despair in its wake. Is there a way to break this tenacious cycle?

Education is an extremely powerful tool that can break the cycle of poverty and allow impoverished individuals to have a brighter hope for their future. With education, a young person can avoid childhood marriage and adolescent parenthood. With education, a graduate can expect an income level that will allow access to better housing, health care, and nutrition. And, with a Christian education, a student may come to know the eternal gift of living water.
With these convictions and with God’s blessings, Alpha Omega Christian Secondary School of Science opened its doors in January, 2016. Goals for the school are (1) to break the poverty cycle, one student at a time; (2) to prepare Christian youth for leadership opportunities in their community and nation; and (3) to emphasize excellence in the sciences so that AOCSS graduates may pursue careers in health care, engineering and other related fields.
AOCSS is a Christian, coeducational, secondary (high) school with boarding students. The campus is located near the rural town of Monduli in northern Tanzania. AOCSS is organized as a subsidiary organization functioning under the supervision of Tanzania Christian Services, Inc. (TCS), a non-profit NGO. In addition to AOCSS, the NGO also operates Tanzania Christian Clinic, a charitable health center in Monduli.
