Expansion Finished At Light Of Hope School

Thanks to a generous grant from Intervarsity’s Urbana 15 and gifts from numerous churches and individuals, The Light of Hope School building expansion was completed this year, standing three stories tall. Many of the furnishings on the first and second floor were provided through two grants from the Independent Presbyterian Church Foundation.

Opened in 2015 to serve the children of the poorest staff at FCC, the school was an immediate success. The first year they were at maximum capacity (180 students in grades K-5) using only the first floor. By November 2016, classrooms grew into the second floor, expanding classes to K-6, serving 242 students. Going forward, an upper class will be added each year, topping out in 2020 with the 10th grade. In April 2017, Light of Hope was chosen as a Model School for all of the Punjab, after being “adopted” by an US NGO supporting quality education through sustained use of technology and digital facilities. This NGO provided colorful, appropriate computer labs perfect for the younger students at Light of Hope.
