This month we share the story of little Oside, a precious girl who joined Ark Quest School this year courtesy of your generous support. Unfortunately, she lost the older sister last year from malaria. Her parents don’t have any formal employment so, in order to raise a meal for each day, they have to constantly depend on odd jobs, which are a challenge to get at the village. Oside’s family has no money for clothes, shoes, or furniture.
What a great blessing to have her access education. At Ark Quest, she is guaranteed of good breakfast and lunch before going home to join the rest of the family. You can imagine the excitement of the little girl while receiving two sets of uniform and shoes from Ark Quest courtesy of your generous support. This is the reality that faces many children out there in the community.
One of our exciting project this year is trusting God for a new school building to replace the now deteriorating structures that have served us so well for 10 years. This is a big vision for the future of the school and therefore the need for an even bigger team of people to pray and partner with us.
In September a small team will be heading to Ark Quest to begin the construction of the new school. A number of local fundraising initiatives will be taking place over the next few months. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for dates and events. All funds raised by this team will go towards construction costs for the new building.
