Dr. Thangboi Haokip
Thangboi Haokip arrived at the University of Minnesota in January 2009 on a special fellowship from the US State Department. He was not only eager to develop his capacities as an educator but also as a follower of Christ. A month after arriving in US he connected with Wilberforce International Institute and became an early program mentee. With the help and mentoring of Wilberforce, he developed a plan to launch a K-10 Christian school for the poorest of the poor in the little village in NE India where he was from. Now, over ten years later, nearly 600 students are enrolled in two campuses and receiving a quality Christian education that multiplies the redemptive change started by Thangboi.
