Education: Gigie Nursery and Primary School
We are proud to support and sponsor this school in Nigeria. Since its inception, EAW has partnered with the school, sponsoring the education of many girls.
Gigie Nursery and Primary School Otor Iyede, located at 19 Olomoro Road Otor Iyede, Isoko North Local Government Area in Delta State.
Founded April 2008, the school was government-approved in May 2010. The school’s motto is “preparing for life”.
The school was founded by Mrs Evelyn Ideh, a seasoned educationist, philanthropist and has a passion for vulnerable women especially widows. Her passion for raising the next generation is unrivalled and she is committed to seeing as many children in rural villages educated. Mrs Ideh is a retired Principal with over 40 years of experience. She is also the mum to our founder, Rev Amanda Bedzrah.
Our school is passionate about the growth of children in every area of life through meaningful partnership with parents in pruning, sharpening and harnessing of skills and talents to a positive end alongside preparing them to become responsible adults in the society.
To impact every child with positive qualities that would transform and make them outstanding in the areas of wisdom, intelligence, diligence, discipline and morals.

The major challenge is the shortage of qualified teachers. Teachers are unwilling to work in the rural areas and schools keep springing up in the community. There is therefore a bid/ competition for the few ones around. We are blessed to have a few good teachers, but would appreciate your prayers for much more.
Another challenge is the parents, some are unwilling to send their children to school as they would prefer them to work at their farms. They are often unwilling to pay the minimal fees to send their children to school, especially the girl child. With our limited resources, we try to provide as much free education, scholarships and support for them.
