OC Ministries is collaborating with Reverend Judith Banya in Baiwala to build a new secondary school for the children in the village. Currently, Rev. Banya leads the Baiwala United Methodist Church, and coordinates a feeding program for over 500 children at the local primary school.
In 2015, the Paramount Chief donated 5.3 acres of land in Baiwala for the future secondary school. Volunteers cleared the land, and harvested crops this season while they anticipated the new construction project. The school will begin construction in Fall 2016. Phase One will be construction of the school’s foundation and walls. Next, in Phase Two the roof will be built. Finally, in Phase Three interior details will be completed and classes can begin!
