Join volunteers in India and construct a large school facility for the E.D. Thomas Memorial Adventist School in southern India. The school is located on approximately 50 acres of a mango plantation filled with beautiful trees near the town of Thanjavur in the state of Tamil Nadu. It was started in 1953 with just eight students, and has since grown to a full elementary and secondary boarding school with up to 1,000 students annually.
Recently, enrollment has started to decline due to poor infrastructure. The dorms and classrooms are leaking, and there is no place on campus that can accommodate the entire school body inside for assemblies. The local Adventist conference has reached out to Maranatha’s assistance to build an Education and Evangelism Center for the school. This large building includes a large gymnasium that can be used for assemblies and community events. It will also include new classrooms for the elementary students. The structure is built with insulated panel sheeting walls. In addition, the group will reach out into the local community to conduct outreach such as children’s ministry programs and health education.Scope
