“Dakar Academy was established in 1961 by United World Mission to serve the educational needs of missionary families living and working in Senegal and other parts of West Africa. As a Christian educational institution, our vision is to produce well-rounded students, prepared for university-level studies, whose Christian worldview permeates all aspects of their lives. We provide a quality elementary and secondary education from a Christian perspective utilizing a U.S. – based curriculum.” – Dakar Academy

We want to see every young person mature into their full identity in Christ. Here we have a unique arena with an opportunity to teach, mentor and sharpen the next generation. Grace Klein Community plays a key role in maintaining relationship through prayer, strategic development and financial donations. Grace Klein Community invests in the lives of those called to serve at Dakar Academy through intentional covering and ministry support.

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

–   EPHESIANS 4:15 – 16   –
