Will you help us build a school and change lives?
Brick by brick, row by row, block by block…
children are waiting for their school to be built!

We are excited to announce that we will raise funds this year to build a new school building in Madaoua. The local church already has property and they will start with a kindergarten class this fall. We will raise the funds through our annual “Laying the Foundation Campaign” during the month of June. There are already over sixty children who attend Sunday School classes. Parents and church members are constantly asking for help to build a school. We invite you to help us by donating a brick, row of bricks, or an entire block.
