What's Included


The Upper Columbia Academy (WA) Project is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects.

In the summer of 2022, Maranatha volunteers helped to prepare for girls dorm renovations. This year we will continue those renovations by painting several areas including the stairwells and front lobby. We will also replace all doors and locks throughout the buildings. If the budget allows, other tasks will include painting the exterior of the building, putting up fences, and making roof repairs and other cosmetic repairs throughout the campus.

We hope you can join us!
