In 2020, members of the InnerCity Mission’s Humanitarian Volunteer Network identified the dire need for education in the community and set up temporary learning centers for the children. At these centers, children received literacy lessons and psychosocial support.
However, it was clear that the children needed a permanent structure. Working with her Partners, the InnerCity Mission took up the challenge and began a school building project. In a few months, the 100%-free InnerCity Mission Primary School, Murbai was ready. The school building houses classrooms, fully equipped teachers’ offices, restrooms, adequate water supply, and a kitchen where free school meals would be prepared for the children daily.
The commissioning of the School had in attendance traditional rulers, senior community leaders, Government representatives, key stakeholders from various communities and other top dignitaries. During the event, the enrolled pupils received their uniforms, bags, school shoes, books, and had their first meal!
