In December 2020 we started the construction of the school, and we ended it by 2021 with the blessings and support of many individuals, churches, and organizations. Its name is Hasta Memorial School. Hasta was the name of my father. He was passionate about education. He worked hard to educate himself informally under candlelight 20 years ago and he always wanted to educate others.
We were able to build 7 classrooms, one library, 2 office rooms, 1 meeting room and 5 toilets. Besides that, we also built one small house with two kitchen rooms, one room with kitchen for the caretaker of the school, one guest room and three toilets. We have been able to create a small children’s playground and an assembly ground and sports area. We have space for handwash and dining. We also added a piece of land behind the school for future needs of construction.
In the middle of 2021, we opened the doors of the school for students. We received and educated 50 students in the first year with 8 teachers who were local young women. We hired a cook, a cleaner, an electrician and plumber and a guard for school operation. We received and educated 75 students with 10 teachers in the 2nd year of our journey. We are soon beginning our 3rd year journey. Besides that, we are constructing rooms for hostel facilities to support far away students and rooms for teachers, volunteers, guests and workers. We are grateful to all individuals, churches and organisations for their love, blessings, and support. We are able to stand for others because you are standing with us. Nothing is possible alone, but everything becomes possible when we join together.
I have faith in Lord Jesus that He gave me this dream and He will guide me and provide all resources, knowledge, and people as He has already given me so many hearts with love and support which helped me until now.
