Abu, a young Christian man started New Life Academy 5 years ago with only 4 students. Today, more than a 100 children are educated in his village. Amidst an all Muslim population you can hear the children sing of God's love!
RGGM has provided increased security by installing a gate and a wall around the school property. Additional classrooms were built; books and play ground equipment have been purchased. It is our hope to see the school grow, educate the children, be touched by the love of God and impact their community. When in Kenya, Maria visits and teaches at the school on a regular basis.
There are still many needs. Because of the lack of classroom space, desks, chairs, books, teachers and teaching material; many children in the village are not receiving an education. This can be difficult for us to imagine. Together with the leaders we identified some of the most pressing needs and are working on a plan to meet these challenges.
Our continuing commitment is to secure the best possible education for the children as we partner with New Life Academy.
