Starfish Christian Trust: Street children

New Covenent Girls High School Open

It was with just a $20 bill that Starfish Christian Trust launched an appeal to build the New Covenant Girl's High School in November 2013. There was no other money in the fund at that time so it was with great joy that I witnessed the school opening last week. Starfish was not a major financier of the project but we were proud to have launched the appeal.


Because the government insisted that the girls be educated in a separate building just two weeks after the opening of the main school it became necessary to start afresh with a new building. before building could begin it was necessary to buy three adjacent plots but step by step the funding continued to come as needed and although there are a few cosmetic finishes to be done the girls have been able to continue their education.


To see them pouring into the school was wonderful. It is a testimony to the faithfulness of God.
