Welcome to Saint Philemon's Academic Center for Excellence, also known as S.P.A.C.E.  The school is located in a small village in Ogoli-Ipangbo, Nigeria.  Saint Philemon's helps educate over 200 young underprivileged children of Nigeria. The school is funded by a non-profit group, Healing Hearts Outreach and through private donations by people such as yourself. 

  


The school has been growing by leaps and bounds in the past year.  The children are taught their daily lessons on the dirt floor of the village church.  If we can raise enough money the students will soon be attending school in their very own building.  Through the kindness of your donations we will be able to complete the new school building.


For more information on our Student Sponsorship, Donating & WebStore Programs...Visit our main Healing Hearts Outreach & S.P.A.C.E  website at:

We currently have an exterior shell for the new school: Three classrooms, two offices, and four bathrooms. With future donations from kind people, such as yourslef, we plan to add a roof, floors, plumbing, plastered walls, a village well and much more.  This website is designed to allow you to see first hand the newest up-to-date information out our ever growing academic center in Nigeria.

  • Books (New or Used)

  • Non-Perishable Foods
  • First Aid Kits and shoes
  • Computers
  • Laptops
  • Buses/School Vans/School Transportation
