The aim of this project was to build a new home for about 80 to 100 children (boys and girls), a primary school and a small clinic in Mahottari, Central Region, Janakpur Zone, Dhanusa District, Nepal. The children’s home was to provide accommodation, food, medical care and education for the children who are at risk and give them a secure environment. The primary school provided free education for the children of the home as well as children from the surrounding area. The small clinic provided free medical treatment for the people of the village.
The home is administered by Eternal World Ministries a Christian Organization founded by Pastor John Raijah. They currently run six children’s homes (5 in India and 1 in Nepal), feed about 700 children each day and provide for all their needs.
Local builders completed the major building work and the team was involved in decorating and fitting out the building.
The aim of the Bangladesh 2012 project was to build a primary school in Muktaram Village which is in the Kurigram district in Northern Bangladesh. The Kurigram district has a population of approx. 2 million people, 17 rivers and its main crop is rice.
The children that will attend the school are from extremely poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged families, with 90% of the parents earning a livelihood from the agriculture industry, meaning very low pay for very hard work. Street children will also be taught at the school in the evenings, as they work during the day.
A local charity, VIEW, asked for our help as there is no government funding for the building or running of schools in rural areas. The team went in to construct a four classroom block
The aim of this project was to build teachers accommodatio at Mifumi Primary School, Tororo, Eastern Uganda. Mifumi Primary School started life as a series of dilapidated shacks with some lessons taking place under trees. Development of the school arose from one family’s dream to provide quality education to the children of Mifumi village. This gave rise to the MIFUMI Project. Support came from far and wide and resulted in the construction of new classrooms and the addition of a nursery. These classrooms soon filled up with children eager to learn. Further classrooms were built as demand grew which in turn led to the need for more teachers. Due to Mifumi’s rural location, finding qualified teachers willing to relocate proved a challenge. Through support from JOA and the Trinity Trust (Jersey), MIFUMI was able build staff accommodation a short distance away at Mifumi Health Centre. Clean water was also installed through a well and pump system. This current project saw the construction of three further accommodation units near the school. This enabled the school to attract qualified teachers to provide a high standard of education to over 600 students. Through this project, we are keeping alive the dream of bringing quality education to the children of Mifumi village and beyond.
