Central Baptist Church, Chelmsford has been one of our main partners and got involved with the ADF in 2003 to help with the construction of an administrative block as part of the ADF’s School project.The block was also to house an IT Centre and a library.
The total cost of the project was GBP 60000.00. Central Baptist Church, Chelmsford provided GBP 30000.00 with the other half being provided by the Atorkor Development Foundation.As part of their contribution, the Church also provided 20 computers, 2000 books, furniture for the IT Suite and library and a generator to help power the computers.
This culminated in a visit of 16 young people and adults from the church who spent three weeks in Atorkor in August 2005 to help complete the school project. They also organised and run a holiday club and IT teaching sessions for the children and teachers of the village.
More importantly, by the end of the visit, a lasting friendship had been formed with the people of Atorkor. The church is currently involved with the ADF in a project to build and equip a Health Centre in Atorkor. It is anticipated that about 20 people from the church will visit Atorkor in the summer of 2007 to help with the project.The total cost of the project will be about GBP 30000.00 and the Central Baptist Church, Chelmsford, has committed to raising half the cost. The Atorkor Development Foundation will also raise the other half.
