Pastor Phillip began the school in Woama in September 2011 in a small structure with a grass roof. He moved the school into a larger building, but rain collapsed the mud roof. He continued to hold classes and the children learned much. There are now 18 students at the school but only two are sponsored. Pastor Philip does not get paid but still teaches with a passion. Last July, science and language arts books were donated to the school and Pastor Phillip is using them to teach the students.
