The executive team started preparing for the summer projects and development as early as the end of 2016. The major task was to complete needed renovations of the remaining dormitories before the end of the summer. This would double the capacity of people that could stay at the campus at one time to 50. Plans to make it possible for 100 people to stay at the campus are currently in development for next year. This will allow Jubilee World and organizations to utilize space for summer programs and volunteers.
In January 2017, Jubilee World HQ worked with community organizations and leaders to acquire all needed materials and resources to complete phase 2 of development for the facility. This included a long list of materials such as paint, flooring, tiles, tools and equipment. The collaboration was a major success with over a dozen organizations donating. This campaign took four months and by May the goal was reached and initial phase 2 renovations had started. One note worthy donation was from a paint company "Paint Away" which donated 100 gallons of paint and has committed to supply paint for the entire campus renovation project.
We pray that 2018 will open more opertunities and resources for the surrounding communities.
