Challenge

There's acute lack of Educational infrastructure in this remote area which is only complicated by low employment & little or no incomes. Large sections of children don't get the opportunity to even enter schools and eventually turn to drugs & alcohol use which in turn leads to bigger social malaise. Agape introduced Free education from pre-primary to primary levels in 2011.

Solution

The Bethsaida Christian school caters to the deprived and ignored children from the underprivileged and downtrodden backgrounds like Economically weaker section (EWS) students , Orphans, Children of HIV/AIDS & Drug Abusers, Broken Families, etc. We've so far provided education to over 500 students since inception. We now plan to upgrade our school by adding three classrooms to absorb at least 60 more students as the current capacity stands at 104.

Long-Term Impact

Potential long term impact includes developing building blocks of evolved Nagaland society where each individual is capable of contributing. Agape plans to eventually raise the Academic level to Higher-secondary and educate 200 more students (50% intake will be Girl students) in next two years. This shall lay the basis for students to pursue income generating skills and Jobs, thereby pull themselves and their families out of poverty and lead a progressive and fulfilled lives.
