Up to the Rafters

Builders have reached the rafters on the second floor of our largest building project to date – the training centre at our Jos headquarters.

Rather than being wooden, these rafters are metal which lasts longer in the Plateau State climate.

“We would like to say a big thank you to the individuals around the world who have supported this building project so far,” said international coordinator Tassie Ghata.

Construction of this particular building commenced in 2020, with the first floor and first fix electrics completed in August last year.

Work is now on hold while we source funding to complete the roof.

Once the roof is complete, builders can move onto the windows, second fix electrics, plastering, bathrooms and kitchen, then furnishing the bedrooms, dining room, lounge and meeting hall.

All construction work is carried out by local skilled workers and labourers, with each stage being built as we have funds – first the foundations, then ground floor, then first floor and roof.

Sponsor a bedroom

When finished the training centre will sleep 54 people in twin bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. 

Would you like to sponsor a bedroom in our training centre and have the room named after yourself or a loved one? You will fund the £4,400 per room fitout cost including bathrooms, flooring, beds, mattresses, pillows, linen, towels and curtains.

You are welcome to sponsor as an individual, family, church congregation, or business.

To sponsor a bedroom please email tassie.ghata@graceandlight.org if you are in Nigeria and edg@blueyonder.co.uk if you are in the UK or Europe.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for:

  • Success for our charity partners fundraising for the major costs of our training centre
  • Further funds to complete the construction and fitout
  • Safety for workers constructing the roof and installing the many windows
  • God’s blessing and favour on this building as we use it for his glory in Jos.
