Started in 1984, Oloototo was our first center with teams coming from Eagle Rock Baptist Church in California. Teams have continued to come every other year since. The center is now home to a chapel, clinic, and dormitories of over 200, primary school to grade 8, housing for teachers, pastor and nurse and their own water system including water filtration system.
This school is ranked 15th in the district of over 130 schools. They have one of the highest percentages of students who pass their 8th grade exams allowing them to go on to High School.
The chapel is the backbone of this center and community. Through the years, visiting teams have held multiple vacation Bible school programs and pastoral leadership seminars. One student who grew up at Oloototo finished secondary and Bible School has been serving for several years now as the pastor to lead the Oloototo church!
Oloototo has also implemented programs to make it a self sustaining center. A satellite school and center, Ololii, was started several years ago to assist students and families that lived too far away to walk safely to Oloototo. Ololii has preschool through class 8 with 250 students!
