CityLife World Impact
LifeLight School, Bhogapuram, India
CityLife World Impact has a goal to reach out and positively impact more than 800 new communities around the world by 2020. As part of this, there are a number of tax-deductible community development projects that CityLife supports through our Kingdom Investment Fund. These projects aim to bless individuals, families and households living in marginalised communities overseas. For example, since 2009 we have funded highly successful adult literacy programs in impoverished rural villages. The literacy project is run by our field partner in India, Divakar. This program has impacted more than 220 villages and dramatically changed the lives of more than 20,000 people forever.
We've embarked on a new project with Divakar that has the potential to impact even more lives, the development of a 3 acre block of land north of Visakhapatnam that was miraculously provided by God. The vision is to build a primary and secondary school, and then a Bible college, student accommodation, chapel and medical centre. Not only will this provide a new base for his rapidly growing ministry, it will also allow him to bless the existing local community and new families moving into this quickly developing area.
The first stage of this project involves the construction of LifeLight School (Bhogapuram, India) that will provide both primary and secondary level education. It will offer high quality, internationally recognised education that will be accessible to poorer families. The school is a proactive response to the felt needs of the local community and it will be a great blessing to them for generations to come. Its influence will be measured in the tens of thousands of lives it impacts. The cost to complete the school construction is AUD $400,000.
Currently, technical plans for the construction have passed through the first stage of government approvals and are currently in the second (final) stage of approval (issue of permits). Once this happens, construction will begin immediately.
Your contribution to this project will make a difference. With your help, we can create a brighter future for the children and families of Bhogapuram, India.
