This was the beleaguered group of the outreach an annex of the visited school earlier. This wing was made to cater for the children whose parents are adamant to providing education, orphans, and vulnerable children. The children are provided with a meal and formal education.

The inhabitants of this community are highly substance farmers and fishermen that have thrived on these economic activities, this has burred their visualization in regards to the merits of formal education. They prefer their children work on farms with them and accompany them to the lake and indulge in fishing activities. Such activities have exposed the little ones to money which has held them captive in such activities while negating education that is perceived as a burrier to their pecuniary advance

Challenges that Maranatha integrated project faces and expectations from G2SU

Slackness in educating children, parents prefer that their children hawk agricultural produce and dig in farms to attending formal education. Having not attended education as children, the parents don’t see need for their children to attend school as well. Inadequate scholastic materials and long distances from homes, the children have to traverse protracted distances from their homes to school. Uncooperative parents, parents to the children are not responsive in line with school requirements as education is not a priority for them

Poor sanitation, the children come from homes where sanitation is not crucial. This has rendered them prone to diseases. Expectations in line with the challenges from G2SU are; helps to sensitize parents on the rationale of education to their children, sanitation programs be instigated to minimize on the risk of children getting diseased and scholastic materials

G2SU impact on the outreach

The team delivered scholastic materials, shoes and clothing to 20 beneficiaries (17 present and 3 absent). The founder reminded of how much God loved them and urged them to be obedient. The head teacher expressed her gratitude on speaking to the G2SUand encouraged the team to return to the project soon
