Join Maranatha in the fascinating country of India! There is a great need for churches and schools throughout the entire country of India, and volunteers on this project will be able to help answer prayers for the ED 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. 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. This type of construction involves a team that will peel protective sheeting off of the panels and prepare the edges as well as a team that will assemble the structure and attach the prepared panels.
In addition, the group of volunteers will reach out into the local community to conduct outreach projects such as children’s ministry programs and health education.Scope
