Some 2020 Worthwhile Accomplishments
LLEM International was able to accomplish many important and worthwhile things in 2020. Here is a sampling:
- We empowered children by fixing the roof of the LLEM Basic School in Asa, Nigeria. The Raise the Roof campaign built a new roof for the LLEM Basic School, purchased new school supplies that included books and chalkboards, and reconfigured the existing classrooms. We didn’t just “Raise the Roof”—we raised spirits!
- During the first wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria, we provided food and monetary assistance to 315 families in Asa and Agu Na Ebere.
- In 2019–2020 the well LLEM built served 14,902 people in Agu Na Ebere and the surrounding communities.
- Teachers at the LLEM Basic School organized several small learning groups for children during the extensive Nigerian lockdown. These small learning groups were essential because, unlike in the United States and in other more developed countries, children from this community did not have Internet access to participate in virtual educational opportunities.
- Through our Bible correspondence course in Nigeria: operation educated the masses with the word of God, we printed and distributed 66,000 booklets and graduated 2,098 students, leading many to Christ.
All of this is to the glory of God.
