The school in Bendu was started in September 2012 and already has 18 students. The teacher, David, rides his bicycle to Bendu from Koidu City and back everyday. However, there are only two students sposored at the school.
Bendu is a very poor farming village without even a well. They must carry water uphill from a steam. However, they have recently been blessed with a man named Pastor Ishmael who has begun teaching improved farming techniques and started an association of farmers. His vision is to teach the farmers methods to grow enough food to feed their families and have excess to sell.
