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 Khunti Adventist School in eastern India near the city of Ranchi.
The Khunti school was established in 1937 and currently has 1,300 students from Nursery through High School and they turn away anywhere from 200-300 students a year due to lack of space! The school is truly a mission school as about half of the student body are not Adventist and the teachers teach about Jesus’ love.
The school has requested Maranatha’s assistance in building new classrooms on campus. The elementary students are scattered around campus in old buildings and several classrooms were recently torn down due to their age and condition. In addition, there is not a suitable auditorium for the entire student body to meet together. They currently use a cafeteria that they have to switch from lunch tables to rows of chairs for worship two times a day!
Maranatha volunteers on this project will be assisting with the construction of a 12-classroom Elementary Education Center that will have enough space for the Primary school to meet as well as a large auditorium in the middle. If we have enough volunteers, we would also like to reach out into the community through activities such as vacation Bible school programs and health education.
At the end of the project, volunteers can choose to join an optional excursion to see the world-famous Taj Mahal.Scope
