Greetings to everyone at Steemchurch. God through his selfless servant @sirknight and the wonderful parishioners at the Steemchurch are impacting lives everywhere.
Not long ago Steemchurch-Ghana unveiled the Steemchurch Education Support Project(SESP) which is aimed at supporting schools in deprived areas with educational materials needed for proper learning.
Last Friday parishioners of Steemchurch-Ghana visited Mabang Presby School. We scheduled our visit on 22nd July but were notified to come the following week. By Gods grace our visit and donation came off last Friday. Glory be to God!
Our team travelled for two hours before reaching the Mabang town. Mabang is a suburb of Tepa, a town in Ashanti Region Ghana. The school was named after the town Mabang. It is a presbyterian school but under the control and supervision of the government now.
The long distance to the Mabang town couldn't allow our parsihioners to come in their numbers and we really appreciate the effort of @odsam2, @collinz and @henryyeboah for the great work done and for making the donation on behalf of the church. We received the warmest welcome from the headmaster of the school, the teaching and non-teaching staff.
Fortunately we arrived during their break time and so we had the chance to interact with the pupils, to know their names and learn few things from them.
Our first visit to the school gave us the opportunity to discover many challenges in the school and one of such challenges was this dilapidated old building here where the pupils study in them.
This was a death trap in disguise and it was a great danger to the pupils. We discussed with the headmaster about how this building could be rebuild. We concluded that by collaborating with interested groups and the Ghana Education Service the school can have a new building soon.
The good news was that this old building has been demolished after the steemchurch raised concern on the need to reconstruct a new building replace this old building whch is in bad shape.
We promised to support with some bags of cement when plans to begin a new buidling is in place.
IT WAS TIME FOR DONATION
We also supported the pupils in the lower primary with educational materials which will be needed for their studies. We donated 500 exercise books, 200 pencils, 300 crayons and charts.
There were wide smiles on the faces of the kids when steemchurch presented these items to the school to be distributed to pupils. It was like their dream has finally come true.
While presenting the items to the headmaster and the staff of teachers we hinted on our desire and plan to also support the pupils with textbooks and furnitures soon.
The headmaster assured us that he would supervise the proper use of the items at the school and thank the Steemchurch Ghana for their support.
The staff also epxressed their interest in joining steemit and the steemchurch since we they were moved by our benevolence.
As church this is what the Lord has called us to do, to be of help to others. We don't need to amass wealth before we can help someone in need. In the sight of the needy, any little gift counts. Steemchurch will continue to reach out and be of help to others in any possible way.
Let's all join the crusade for freedom in the order of @sirknight.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
