The nearest school was too far away, but AIM brought the school to the village.

Tanzania (MNN) — Ninety children are benefiting from a new school in their small village, just north of the Serengeti in Tanzania.

Children from the village of Nyamakombu had to walk 11 miles to the nearest school. Many familes decided to stop sending their children to school, especially the younger ones. And for those who did remain in school, walking long distances was a problem that led to poor academic performance.

When Africa Inland Mission workers discovered this problem, AIM initiated a project to build a school for the village. The Nyamakombu Primary School Project was established by AIM to assist in the creation of a new Christian primary school for the children of Nyamakombu. This $50,000 (USD) seven phase project includes the construction of classrooms for grade one through seven, an administrative office, and housing for teachers.

With three classrooms and two teachers’ houses now constructed and in use, AIM is encouraged. They’re plan is to add a class each year up to grade seven. Currently 90 children are benefiting from this new school, and as the population of the area continues to grow, many more will benefit in the future.

AIM hopes to instill the word of God in the children at a young age, and raise up many who follow after Him. Funding for the next phases of this project is still needed. Click here for contact information.
