Stones of hope

Hewing stones of hope out of mountains of despair.

When the restoration of GSSA is over, we shall turn our attention to other erstwhile leadership academies of southeastern Nigeria. Like GSSA, these were excellent and highly reputable high schools in the past, until war came and set them on the path of decline and decay. In all of these schools buildings are in an advanced state of dilapidation and decay and most buildings are therefore unusable.

The following are some of the schools we shall target but not necessarily in this order:
  • Queens School Enugu, a girls’ high school.
  • Hope Waddell Calabar.
  • Christ the King College, Onitsha.
  • Government College Umuahia.
  • Government Secondary School Owerri.
  • Dennis Memorial Grammar School, Onitsha.
  • Queen of the Rosary College, Onitsha, a girls’ high school.
  • College of the Immaculate Conception, Enugu.
  • Cornelia Cordelia College, Uyo, a girls’ high school.
  • Holy Rosary College Enugu, a girls’ high school.
  • Bishop Shanahan College, Orlu.
  • Stella Maris College, Port Harcourt.
  • Holy Ghost College Owerri.
  • Methodist College Uzuakoli.
  • St. Patrick’s College, Calabar.
Schools in other war ravaged countries of sub-Saharan Africa

After the restoration of the above schools, all of them former leadership academies – located in south-eastern Nigeria (formerly Biafra), all of them devastated by the Nigeria-Biafra War (aka Nigerian Civil War) of the late 1960’s – we shall extend our restorative effort to other countries with schools devastated by war. These countries include South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Liberia and the Congo.
