Our primary objective on a continual basis is making sure that the children are fed 3 times a day, and that the staff of the school is paid. We are forever grateful for the ways God has provided consistently for the needs of the children. That being said, we are currently running at about 50% of our ideal
operating budget. This is not a budget designed to provide any excessive accommodations, but rather to focus on paying teachers and other caregivers of the children (those who are directly responsible for developing their future) at a rate relatively comparable to the rest of the country. This keeps the staff loyal which directly benefits the children and their education. Fungbeh and Neyor are currently building a new orphanage site in Suakoko (about 30 minutes away from the current CCH site) that will accommodate a school up to 12th grade, which will allow the children the benefit of graduating from CCH as opposed to having to be transported to a school out in town past 6th grade (the current CCH schoolhouse only teaches through 6th grade).
