We have been hard at work revamping a large chicken coop into a small school and our kids couldn't be more excited to move in. We've also installed pavers and wheelchair accessible bathrooms so the school is ready for our students with special needs. Our children with special needs will have their own classroom and will be attending school for the first time in their lives!
Because of labor trafficking, poverty and other special needs, most of the kids living in the GMAD home haven’t been able to attend school in the past and are significantly behind. We started the GMAD Academy of Learning in October 2017 because the local government school isn’t equipped to meet the educational needs of these children. The children have been temporarily attending class in the dining hall and library, and are looking forward to having their own school.
