NFE Begins Planning for New, Larger School
Nicolas Fund for Education currently has a lease on a property owned by a church in Nebaj. This has made a terrific starter home for Nicolas Christian School. Based on current enrollment projections, however, we will exceed capacity for that leased building in a couple of years.
NFE has heard from school parents that they wish our school was closer to their home villages based near Cotzal, rather than in Nebaj.[spacer height=”20px”]NFE Board members on the July 2017 Impact Team will continue the process of looking at available property in or around Cotzal. Based on earlier investigations, there has not been property large enough in Cotzal that we could lease for the school. We also need adjacent property space for sport fields.
This has led us to believe that we will likely have to build.[spacer height=”20px”]NFE will seek grants and individual donations to help fund the new school when our plans are finalized. Please pray for us during this process of investigation and planning, and that donations to build the facility will become available when the plans are finalized. We endeavor to be good stewards of every dollar donated!
