Praise God! The prayers and donations of African Leadership’s supporters have allowed us to complete the construction of Emmanuel Elementary School in Madagascar and open the school for local students. The school currently caters to 80 students in 3 classrooms. The local church currently operates the school and has been registered with the government in hopes to raise the low literacy rate in Madagascar.
Although the land was small, we have constructed a beautiful school building with 3 classrooms and functioning washrooms. The building was constructed to withstand harsh weather and allow air to flow through the building on hot days. Though it was originally planned for the school to have five classrooms, there were unexpected increases in construction materials that affected our plans. The largest classroom measures 6m by 7m and is used for Sunday worship services. The dimensions of the two remaining classrooms are 6m by 5m.
