When Ezekiel 37 visits the villages in Uganda with mission teams it does not go unnoticed how many children are there when they should be in school. We have been visiting Kayepas village for 6 years. A child, Lokut Friday, who was 2 when we first met him is now 8 and he has NEVER been to school! The closest school is over 5 miles away. Children must walk to the school. School is also NOT free. So even if there was a school around the parents would not be able to afford to send them.
In May 2016, an elder of Kayepas Village in Uganda was addressing the team and telling us their struggles and needs. One man stood and said "Do you see all of these children? They should be in school but they aren't because there's no school for them." It hit our team in the heart. The elders showed their commitment by signing over to us 8 ACRES of land at no cost to us to build a school. The school will be a Christian school where children will hear the word of God. The school has been named Akigyeno which is the word HOPE in the Karamajong language.
Currently a building with 3 classrooms, an office and storage room has been constructed. Also, a 14 stall pit latrine (bathroom). On May 28, 2018, the school opened with 3 classes (totaling about 70 children). These children will be nursery level classes.
The school will also provide jobs for adults in the village: a cook, gardener, security, and cleaners.
We are continuing our fundraising to continue construction on future classrooms, small rooms for the teachers to stay in and a security fence. Please support Akigyeno School by purchasing raffle tickets on this beautiful quilt.
Ezekiel 37 Ministry is standing on the scripture of 2 Corinthians 5:7 "Walk by faith, not by sight."
