Support for the « Holy Ghost College » in Nigeria
The „Holy Ghost College Sankera“ is run by the Holy-Ghost-Brethren of the region Makurdi in Nigeria. Father Kuha Indyer, CSSp, is the driving force behind the project. On September 18, 2006, the school started with 30 students who graduated in 2012. In the school year of 2007/ 2008, the number of students doubled. By the year of 2012, the number rose to 211 students. The “Holy Ghost College Sankera” is the first of its kind in the area. The college owes its foundation and existence to a very simple but yet strong idea. “If we want to create a better world, we’ll need better education”, says Father Kuha. The local population gratefully accepted the college and in 2009, they decided to establish a primary school next the college which is attended by about 100 pupils. Good education based on Christian values is the concept of the college and enables the develop themselves – and therefore a better society.
