Theological Training and MissionEven though the work of the diocese of Mara is very holistic, focusing on the material and eductional needs of the people, there is still the need to provide for their spitiual needs and proclaim the Good News. We are a partner for Heather Johnstone, from the Church Mission Society, who is working in Mara.
Education for Children and AdultsThe team at the diocese of Mara knows that the best way of improving the long-term prospects for their local communities is to provide them with education. This starts with primary school teaching, where the diocese runs several schools and extends to training and practical help for local farmers to help them improve crop yields while working the land in a sustainable way.
Wells and HealthWhen you live far away from a clean supply, getting water for washing or cooking can mean a long trek to the nearest water-hole, carrying a bucket or other container..In Mara, women and children can spend many hours each day on this back-breaking task , and the water they bring back is often polluted by animals that use the same supply. We have provided wells with clean water, freeing up time for the women and allowing children to study.
