We provide jobs to an area rife with unemployment, and aid in continuing education of the school's teachers. A job is not just something to do but restores dignity as well. Pray with us for quality teachers and for honest, skilled workers as we continue our building project.
The school employs local school teachers and our building project has provided jobs for many in the community. In addition one of our long term goals is to encourage local micro-enterprise.
We employee and provide continuing education to teachers of Grace Private School. Our building project has provided many jobs including supervisors, transporters of materials, brick makers, and masons. We are excited to see that what benefits our students will also benefit the adults of Koro, giving them opportunities for employment.
The ripple effect of this tiny school in a remote town in a desperately poor country that is not even on most Westerner's radar is immense. The administrators and teachers, school nurse, and builders and security guard and all of the others that receive an income from the school - the children receiving the education - their families who benefit from the child's education and their burgeoning faith and dreams - and the wider community that will ultimately benefit from these well educated, enthusiastic young people - so many people are affected by the smallest donation, the humblest prayer, the tiniest amount of attention.
In the fall of 2016 we financed the drilling of a deep well that now not only provides water for the school but for at least 25% of Koro. The well has been a boon for our neighbors. The fast flowing water gives women and children that typically spend much of their day waiting to fill a their buckets more time to do other things.
