On the week of the celebration of the Pentecost, the children of St. Mary’s Nursery School of Korongoni Parish in Moshi, Tanzania were also celebrating for the new classrooms built through the assistance of ANCOP Canada. Bro. Ricky Cuenca, member of the International Council and ANCOP CANADA President cut the inaugural ribbon and opened the symbolic plate.
This was followed by the blessing of the classrooms by Rev. Fr. Deogratias Matiika, current Administrator of the Catholic Diocese of Moshi and assisted by Fr. Wili Maningi, Parish Priest of Korongoni Parish who also gave the words of appreciation for making the classroom project possible.
Last year, the St. Mary’s Nursery School was about to be closed because the Department of Education found the classrooms not conducive to learning because the children are jampacked as they are just using the Parish’s multi purpose hall. ANCOP CANADA paved the way in making the dreams of these children come true.
Present during the inauguration are members of the Pastoral Council of Korongoni Parish, teachers, and the Couples for Christ team headed by Bro. Jun Clarito, Eastern Africa Regional Coordinator with wife Malou, Bro. Raul Marababol (Tanzania Country Coordinator)with wife Joy, Fulltime Pastoral Workers Goi and Charm Villegas, Henjie San Juan, Manu Muinde, Sylvester Mahiri and Ancop Africa Coordinator, Maggie Mwikali.
