Long Description:
It is in 1835 that Madame Henriette Feller, a widow aged 35, arrived in Lausanne, Switzerland, with Pastor Louis Roussy, twelve years his junior. They had been sent by the Missionary Society Lausanne.À that time, education was rare. So many families sent their children on the day to receive basic training. Their parents came in the evening, often to learn to read, and always listen to the Word of God. Feller remained at his post until his death in 1868.

This is the beginning of what would become the Institut Feller, a renowned boarding school for boys and girls, and offered a quality education from elementary through high school. The school closed in 1967 and was destroyed by fire the following year.

C’est en 1835 que Madame Henriette Feller, une veuve de 35 ans, est arrivée de Lausanne, Suisse, accompagnée du pasteur Louis Roussy, de douze ans son cadet. Ils avaient été envoyés par la Société Missionnaire de Lausanne.À cette époque, l’instruction était rare. Alors, plusieurs familles y envoyaient leurs enfants le jour pour y recevoir une formation de base. Leurs parents venaient le soir, souvent pour apprendre à lire, et toujours pour écouter la Parole de Dieu. Madame Feller est restée à son poste jusqu’à sa mort en 1868.

C’est le début de ce qui allait devenir l’Institut Feller, un pensionnat réputé pour garçons et filles, et qui offrait une éducation de qualité du primaire jusqu’à la fin des études secondaires. L’école a fermé ses portes en 1967 et a été détruite par un incendie l’année suivante.
