JOBUS - Youth Pursuing Dreams, is a desire I have in my heart and I would like to share with you this dream.
We, as Christian Educators, in agreement with the directives of M.P.N.E, decided to implement “PROJECT JOBUS” as we consider the education and reintegration of children and youth into society as well as help develop Christian character, as indispensable.
We believe that through Christian education, we will be able to develop new and good habits that will shape their character, and supply the knowledge that they need.
In this way, we will be contributing to the adjustment of a youth into society and preparing him to be a useful citizen, happy and self-governed by divine and God fearing principles.
