New Desks for Blessings Lighthouse School!!

Funds Raised through Birdies for Charity 2011 & 2012 were used to purchase new student & teacher desks at the Blessings Lighthouse School in Misisi Compound, located in Lusaka, Zambia!

Bishop Misika shares these words:
 "God is great, and this can only be His doing!  I could not believe my eyes as the school desks started arriving from the workshop!  I recall how much 'pleading' I received from school management over desks, as the pupils were using church benches and chairs, and over time these starting breaking.  The Blessing Lighthouse School management and the church leadership remain very grateful to God for all the donors for this timely donation.  We are proud that this School stands out to be the only school out here providing orphaned and vulnerable children with a conducive learning environment."
