The InnerCity Mission for Children has commissioned a primary school building at Murbai, Ardo Kola LGA, Taraba.

This facility, founded by the NGO, one of the many under the Pastor Chris Oyahkhilome Foundation International, became the second of such in the north, and the ninth on the network.

In her welcome address at the commissioning May 16, Omoh Alabi, the director of the InnerCity Mission, said the structure is a symbol of the NGO long-term commitment to the growth and development of the nation’s invaluable resource and future: its children.

“This Primary School in Murbai community will give boys and girls alike equal access to innovative educational content, psychosocial support, skills acquisition, and more,’ a partner of the mission said.

“At the end of their time at the InnerCity Mission School, the children will be equipped with necessary tools to help them live above poverty and deprivation and grow up to be responsible adults.”

The Murbai primary education got disrupted following series of attacks in the locality. But the NGO set up literary centres to offer literary and psychological help to the children in the run-up to the  building project.

Through its network of primary schools spread across Africa and Asia, the NGO has offered over 3000 orphaned, vulnerable, and excluded children have received scholarships to start and complete their primary education.

Present at the commissioning of the school were traditional rulers, senior community leaders, top dignitaries from the LoveWorld Nation, Government representatives, and other key stakeholders from various communities.
