Rejoice and Jenny Kamei – Nagaland, India

Rose Of Sharon Christian Schools And Home

Rejoice Kamei is the headmaster of The Rose of Sharon Schools and Home which is located in Nagaland, India.

This is situated at the NE corner of India along the Burma border. The people there are extremely poor tribal people. Free education at the Rose of Sharon Christian Schools and Home is being provided to all poor and needy students.

We are so grateful God has allowed us to have a small part in making a difference in the lives of these children.

The children come from various religious backgrounds such as Muslim, Hindu, Christian, and Animist (spirit worshipers).

They are all taught in the English language and have Bible classes, attending chapel services as well.

Many abandoned children and orphans are also brought here regularly so that they may be cared for properly.

They also provide vacation Bible schools and teenage Bible camps.

Every Sunday, they have a church service, and the local people and parents are invited.

Help Provide for the Children at the Rose of Sharon School

Rejoice Kamei, the director of the school, has informed me that there is a particular need to assist about 40 – 60 children who are not able to pay for their school needs.

The school uniform and books’ annual cost is $125, or just over $10 per month.

Many children in the area are orphaned, whose mothers are widows or whose parents are too poor to pay for the necessary books and uniforms.

This provides us with the opportunity to play a critical role in the success of a young child.

Unfortunately, the school cannot cover the expenses involved in purchasing the books and uniforms for these children.

We are so grateful God has allowed us to have a small part in making a difference in the lives of these children.

There are now 635 students who attend the Rose of Sharon School. 45 students and 17 teachers live in the compound.

More students are waiting to start school as soon as the facilities are available.

Our projected goal is to complete facilities that will accommodate 1,000 students.

The classes provided include Kindergarten A & B, a grammar school and a high school up to 10th grade.

In Asia, high school only goes up to 10th grade, then only those who wish to attend college go to college preparatory school.

Presently, 17 fully qualified teachers are all of the same tribal backgrounds and can relate to all of the students. There are no foreign teachers at all.

The attendance at the school has grown to 635 children — up about 135 children from last year.  We need more classrooms and housing and bunk beds for the students.

The school is growing and expecting to have about 650 to 700 students next year.  Please pray for this critical need.

A basic building will cost approximately $15,000.

Before, I could hire a carpenter to build new buildings and desks, but the price for carpenters has gone up much, so I cannot afford it.

We need more classrooms and desks.

We have 635 students now. Grade 9 has 80 students all in one room.

There is nowhere to sit. Many students must stand.

I will have to make it myself, but as headmaster, I have no time.

We will be conducting an annual Bible camp this year in October for the students.

 

We need Bibles, study materials, and food for the students for the camp.

We will have a program for the students’ parents and families, which will include a plan of salvation.

Please pray for all who attend. We would greatly appreciate your support.
