Project Ghana – Restoring a Village Preschool
ILC member, Dick Rudloff, has helped to organize funding and will be traveling to Ghana to help restore the preschool facilities at the Nyakekye orphanage this Spring. Over $2,500 was raised by the Immanuel community, including over $100 from our own Son-Light Pre-Schoolers who collected loose change to help the children in Ghana.
