At the start of February KISC celebrated its 30th birthday! Formed in 1987 as a small study centre for about a dozen or so children secondary aged children, it has changed a lot in the last 30 years.
Since then it has grown to around 220 students, ranging from 4 to 19 years old. We also work with several partner schools in 3 regions of Nepal through our teacher training branch EQUIP. We support another similar school in Pokhara and there is the plan and vision to start a teacher training college in the next few years. We also have a new site to move to hopefully by the end of this year, with our own buildings, after 30 years of nomadic existence.
It’s an exciting time to be part of KISC and we are privelleged to be able to play a role in the work that is going on at KISC. We came for 2 years nearly a decade ago, and it has proven to be a big part of our lives.
The birthday itself has become our Global Day of Prayer for KISC, this year was the 3rd time we’ve held this. We had people from all around the world sign up to pray for KISC. Then on the following day we had a community lunch, a special service of celebration and of course, cake! Part of the service included a video showing the history of KISC, which you can watch here if you'd like.
Happy Birthday KISC!
