Principals from private and government secondary schools across southern Jos are inviting Grace & Light volunteers into their schools following a seminar explaining our schools ministry.
More than 60 principals representing virtually all the secondary schools in Jos South attended the seminar on 31 May at the local government education directorate offices.
International coordinator Tassie Ghata explained how Grace & Light works in schools and shared examples of the issues volunteers come across during their visits including sexuality, sexual abuse, drugs, stealing and lying.
She said: “We are happy so many school leaders came to hear about our work. They identified with what we were sharing and asked lots of questions. We were invited to talk for 20 minutes but ended up speaking for over an hour because the principals had so many questions.”
The seminar has opened the door to many secondary schools the Jos volunteer team has not yet been able to visit. These visits will commence in September after the summer holidays during August.
