img_4810I am so excited to send these awesome pictures to you of the new C.A.R.E. Africa Educational Center. Our staff have been praying and praying for months for a building for C.A.R.E. Africa. Currently we have been housed in the hospital compound in a 10×10 office at the Spring of Life clinic. The hospital and Pastor Alabi have graciously let us use this space for our office, weekly caretaker meetings, monthly child celebrations, Saturday weekly discipleship and weekly staff meetings. We have grown so much that we were starting to dominate the space and the kids coming and going was just too much.

img_4819We are excited that God answered our prayers with this building that has 6 class rooms, 4 administrative offices, one large hall and one small hall and a playground area. We will be able to host our AWANA program here and have the space we have needed for so long to break into small groups for team time. We will also be able to split the small kids and the big kids up for the council time now.

Overall our goals with this building is to have a central location for all our events. Our kids will have a safe place to come and receive special lessons after school and be able to study. We plan to also offer WAEC/JAMB/NECO coaching for the entire community of Egbe. This is the US equivalent of SAT/ACT prep. They do not offer this in Egbe and many secondary school children are scoring too low on these exams to gain admittance into University.

img_4820Last but not least we desire to open an IJMB course for secondary school graduates that scored too low on their WAEC/JAMB/NECO. This course with the passing of the IJMB exam will allow them direct admittance to 200 levels in University. This is another opportunity for secondary school graduates that are currently not available in Egbe.

We know God has big plans for this building and talks of adult programs, classes for slow learners and even business empowerment classes are in our big vision. We will see what God does!!
