On their way to school five (5) children under the age of 16 died while crossing a major road. The tragedy led parents to stop their children from attending school. The community members and MICI’s missionary mobilized themselves and started a school in their community in a structure built with clay and thatched roofs.
The project lead made an appeal to GAD for a school in the area. We helped them by building a school in their community (see image below).
We started in 2011 from kindergarten to 3rd grade. We added 4th and 5th grades the following year. What we teach them is equivalent to kindergarten, 1st, 2nd 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade in the United States of America.
We started with a total of 58 students and we now have more than 150 students.
We plan to build another building of the same size and additional room for an office, and on the same land. The second building will accommodate another 150 children. We have a plan to complete this building and WE NEED your support to complete the school.
Education is essential to economic development, especially for poor people in developing countries.
