Summer mission report
Thank you for being a friend of Raise the Roof Academy and being a part of so many wonderful projects! Below are highlights and accomplishments from the 2017 summer mission trip.
rhino kid's camp
Our mission team hosted the Rhino Kid’s Camp for 5 days. During the week, our team served over 1,600 children. Going to camp has become the biggest event of the year for the children. Team members from the US, teachers, local volunteers, and our new school mascot, Ronnie the Rhino, created a fun environment with crafts, games, music, Bible lessons, dancing, skits, and even yoga!
by the numbers
gift a gallon
With your help, we were able to give 918 Gift a Gallon bags to the children at Raise the Roof Academy this year. This was three times more than last year and meant that every child enrolled at the school received a gift that will improve hygiene and add smiles to their faces for months to come.
Our incredible construction team built 80 tables and 160 benches in one week. You can see the pavillion in the background where the children will soon enjoy their daily meals while sitting on these new tables and benches!
