The LORMA COLLEGES’ Mission is to provide quality and Christian education relevant to current and future needs, to develop the total person and to reach all students locally and internationally through the use of modern technology.
In the light of this Mission Statement an Integrated Community Outreach Program becomes an integral component of its educational system and formation process.
LORMA COLLEGES finds it imperative that it’s educational processes give attention to the development of awareness and consciousness of needs/ problems that characterize our society and people.
This academic community that dedicates itself in active solidarity with the poor can only give meaning to a truly nationalistic, contextualized and liberating Christian education.
The Integrated Outreach Community Program then becomes a necessary instrument for the linkage of school and community, of the theories and facts, of the classroom and social reality.
This facilitates a more dynamic learning and translates potentials for community building into actual service for the benefit of the poor, depressed and less privileged among our people.
