A few people got in touch after my post about Ali submitting her CV for teaching in Nigeria. Coming out not long after our newsletter about fundraising, I think I might have caused a bit of confusion. Sorry about that! Here is my attempt to clear it up.
As Wycliffe members servign overseas we need to raise all the support we need before we can go.
Ali’s assignment we hope, will be to teach at Hillcrest school in Jos.
We hope Dan will be a pupil at the same school.
The school is managed by a collection of organisations working in Jos, Wycliffe is just one of those.
The school won’t pay Ali a salary, but there is a sytem in place to discount the fee’s we need to pay for Dan attending the school. The more teachers that Wycliffe provide for the school, the bigger the discount can be.
That discount system will apply to all the Wycliffe kids who are in the school, enabling their parents to continue to do their jobs, be it translation, literacy, manager or any of the other hundred jobs that people do in Nigeria.
So it may be indirect, but Ali working at the school will reduce the amount we need to raise before we can head out there.
