Many of the students at the Ntandi campus live in the dormitory because their parents do not live in the area. The government has mandated that the girls and boys be housed in totally separate buildings. In 2014, we raised $15,000 to build the first phase of the girls’ dormitory.
We also continued the Orphans Sponsorship Program so each of the orphans have a prayer partner and friend. Additionally, 30 sponsors committed to donating $39 a month to provide food every school day for a year to the 300 children who cannot afford to eat.
Finally, we committed to bring Marriam, a 16-year-old crippled girl, to Vancouver to receive medical treatment and physical therapy to help her walk. (Marriam arrived on June 2, 2015!)
In 2013, we raised $14,000 and built a fence around the campus to keep the children safe. We also purchased a commercial stove for the primary school to make their food preparation more efficient while saving them a lot of money on firewood. Several people committed to donate funds to provide lunch every school day for the 300 students who can’t afford to eat and we found penpals for each of the 52 orphans. Additionally, we raised $2,500 to help some of the orphans with special needs. Thank you for partnering with us and with God to bless our friends in Ntandi! Photos & Video
In the summer of 2012, we raised over $37,000 for the Ntandi school to construct and furnish a building that is now used as a kitchen, dining hall, and chapel. Thank you for helping make a difference in the lives of these kids! Photos
In 2011, we created the Uganda Learning Library by sending literacy kits to Ntandi school. Each kit consists of a Teacher Resource Binder and six sets of 95 Leveled Readers, featuring Bible stories, nature, values, and more!
In the summer of 2010, Epikos held a series of Shoeless Saturdays, shoes-optional days to raise awareness and funds for shoes for Ntandi. We were able to provide shoes for all 750 students and orphans.
