Impact missions and the people of Ukum appreciate your generous support.
Please consider a monthly gift today. Gifts of any amount move us closer to fully funding construction of Impact Academy.
Construction of Impact Missions Academy is underway! Once complete, the state of the art 500-capacity school will serve middle and high school students. Each student will also graduate with skills in a trade of his or her choice in one of four areas—auto mechanics & welding, seamstressing, carpentry, or hairdressing. The goal is for all students, whether they are able to attend a university or not, to learn a trade that not only earns a living wage, but also provide purpose in their lives.
Your continued support will ensure that the school is completed in time for Fall 2020 enrollment. Please consider a generous gift to support these projects:

We believe education is a ticket out of poverty. We believe every boy and girl should have access to high quality and affordable education by partnering with communities to make certain every child is able to go to school and access healthcare no matter where he or she lives.
Think of all you take for granted daily: access to education, access to a seat and a book inside a classroom, a turn of the faucet for an endless supply of clean, drinkable water. Impact Missions not only brings needed resources and services to communities, we make a transformational difference in the people and the communities we serve.
Our mission is to provide clean water, healthcare, and education to the rural community of Ukum, Nigeria.
A world where all children have access to a world-class education and healthcare no matter where they live.
• Every life is worthy
• Every person deserves an opportunity to live a meaningful life
• We faithfully steward our resources

Water—the very essence of life—was destroying lives. Yet, the villagers had no choice but to drink dirty water and suffer the consequences of diarrhea, cholera, and hepatitis.
Impact Missions and our donors refused to stand by idly and watch this continue to happen. With our first project in early 2015, we raised funds to dig a well that provides save, clean drinking water for the village and surrounding areas.
Today, the well's generator runs constantly to keep up with the need for fresh water. Villagers—mostly women —are coming from as far as six miles away to collect water, walking to the well and then carrying the water home on their heads. That's how important this well is to the people of Ukum.

With literacy rates so low in the village, it is vital to build a school. Impact Missions is now raising funds for a multi-use facility that can be used for education. Four acres have been purchased. Our goal is to purchase 16 more acles at $2,000 per acre by spring 2016.
Impact Missions Academy will be a three-story building with 20 classrooms, a teacher's workspace, science and computer labs and a multi-use space. Initially, the school will enroll students in 6th and 7th grade and will have a capacity for 500 students.
This 100-bed medical facility will have a section dedicated to women and chilren's health issues, a laboratory with onsite testing and preventative services.
Once the education and medical facilities are complete, Impact Missions' goal is to raise money to construct boys' and girls' residence halls with capacity to house a minimum of 500 students.
