Victory Primary School
For those of you that haven’t heard, we are building a school! Victory Primary School is currently under Phase 1 of construction, which includes a full working kitchen, brand new bathrooms, and two finished classrooms. The upgraded kitchen and bathrooms are required for the accreditation process, and the classroom space is greatly anticipated as the current students are meeting in various corners of the church. We are also excited to share that we are almost to our $50k goal!
