FIRST MISSION TRIP (2009)
In 2009, the team travelled to the school and on arrival, the welcome received from the teachers and children was overwhelming. A borehole to provide clean water had been constructed prior to the team’s arrival. Over a two· week period, our builders worked alongside African builders constructing two school blocks of eight classrooms and a toilet block. Our teachers taught the children songs, craft, games and led a Holiday Bible Club. The medical team carried out a health check on all the children. A number of sewing machines were purchased and three ladies from our team taught the African ladies the skills of sewing. Since our team’s involvement, the school has continued to thrive with over 700 pupils now enrolled who, as a result of the very high quality teaching being provided, are achieving excellent exam results.
