BLESSING ACADEMY (BUILT IN 2010) EFFORTS IN YEASOM VILLAGE

The Need in Manipur, India (Yeasom Village)

The Families: Most survive by performing small jobs, like farming crops or rice, or taking construction and seamstress work. Families are usually large and struggle to educate their kids. Children normally end up working in order to support the family rather than going to school. Children are not usually educated past middle-school level, if they are fortunate enough to get to that point.

Milestones:

  • Land donated & cleared: Fall 2009
  • School construction: 2010 & early 2011
  • Children’s home, phase 1 & 2: 2012-13
  • Teacher’s Quarters; phase 1: 2016
  • Water tank: 2017
  • 52 students currently sponsored; $40/mo
  • Total enrollment 130. Grades K through 9.

Current Needs (2020/2021):

  • Need to expand – school very popular
  • Construct 2-3 additional classrooms
  • Expand Children’s Home
  • Teacher’s Quarters; phase 2
  • Sponsorships for remaining students

GRACE ACADEMY (BUILT IN 2019) EFFORTS IN WEST BENGAL

THE NEED IN WEST BENGAL, INDIA

Education: Many Indian schools in the North East are not adequate; poorly run with modest educational benefits. Students have little chance to escape poverty, hear the word of God, better themselves, or have a bright future. The NICCE Foundation allows the poorest children to be educated while allowing them to grow in their relationship with Christ and still remain close to their families.

Milestones:

  • Oct 2016: Site visit and meet villagers
  • Jan 2018: Land donated
  • Summer 2019: 1st Floor of Grace Academy completed
  • March 2020: Children’s Home completed; house Tea Garden Children
milestone

Current Needs (2020/2021):

  • 25 child sponsors ($40/mo); allows Tea Garden Children to attend School

Many of the neighboring villages are made up of Hindu families.

These families are also struggling to educate their children and are desperate to find an affordable option. Not only will we be able to offer an education for neighboring village children, but an introduction to a life with Jesus. We are very excited about the outreach potentials that this mission has to offer for the neighboring Hindu villages and families.
