Baptist College of Theology, Igede-Ekiti
Roofs Project Completed 2018; 2nd Project Currently in Progress
Project Managers: Dr. Olagunju Olugbenga and Baker Hill
The Baptist College of Theology in Igede-Ekiti uses many of the old buildings of a former secondary modern school that were built over sixty years ago. Due to their age and the scarcity of funds, the buildings had fallen into disrepair. Leaky roofs were a particular problem, causing difficult learning conditions.
The school is undergoing an accreditation process, and its rector Dr. Olagunju Olugbenga has a vision for its improvement. He asked for assistance when an NFW group visited the campus in 2017 and saw the challenges the college was facing.
In 2018 NFW gave funding to provide new roofing materials for two large classroom blocks, and volunteers from the local community provided the labor. Now when it rains the students can keep their focus on learning. NFW also provided funds for a new security gate for the campus.
Now NFW is funding the complete renovation of the campus chapel, which is underway.
“We are grateful for the kindness the people of NFW have shown to our college, and we pray that the Lord will continue to bless your organization in Jesus’s name.”
