Join volunteers in India and construct new classrooms for the Jingshai Mihngi Adventist School in northeastern India.
The school is located in the town of Jowai, Meghalaya, India. Adventist parents in the region were worried about sending their children to local schools due to conflicts with the Sabbath and sending their children to the nearest boarding school was financially impossible. So in 2005, the Jingshai Mihngi school began educating 150 students in a rented building in town.
Today, they have rented a new building and have more than 430 students. But the new building doesn’t accommodate the growing number of students hoping to enroll each year. The current campus also has other major issues that close the school during heavy rains including roof leaks and an improper sewage drainage system.
The local Adventist conference has reached out for Maranatha’s assistance to build twelve brand-new classrooms on a new property on the edge of town. Volunteers on this project will help meet this immediate need by construction several One Day School classrooms with panel sheeting walls. In addition, depending on the number of volunteers on the project, the volunteers can reach out into the local community to conduct outreach such as children’s ministry programs and health education.Scope
