It’s Electric!

Written by lauren. Posted in Education, Village Project Africa

It’s such an exciting time at Heritage Academy right now! Through the support of our donors, we have been able to add new classrooms that will help us continue to add new grade levels and more students; a new multipurpose building that will serve as a cafeteria, community center, and church; and beds to our dormitories so that more vulnerable children will have a new home, a new family, and a new chance at life.

ClassroomPerhaps one of the most exciting things for Heritage Academy is that we will soon get electricity at the school! We have recently formed the Heritage Parent’s Committee, and the parents decided that they wanted to find a way to provide electricity for the school. The entire community knew how important this goal was. 

The committee asked each family to contribute 100 shillings per child for electricity.  Many  parents contributed and their participation and enthusiasm means so much to us. However, after the fundraising was complete, their donations were not enough to get the transformer and  power lines to the school.

Yesterday, we learned that some of our friends will make a gift to pay the difference.  They told Davis, our program director, to go ahead with the process and not wait any longer for a possible lower price.  Davis will go to the electric company on Monday to tell them we can now pay for the installation. There is great rejoicing and thanksgiving in the village today!

This gift will support the goals of Heritage Academy in so many ways and help us to continue to provide a world-class education to our students! The possibilities are limitless! God is so good!
