The first Maranatha School was started in the village of Mizigo. Growth has been rapid at the Mizigo School; today over 500 students from preschool through 9th grade attend each day. Students are at the school from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., which makes for a long day, given that some students walk four miles each way. But they receive two meals on most days - both corn-based porridge - and they find time to laugh and dance and play and sing. Over 200 students remain at the school over night. They are housed in the boys and girls dormitories built by KidsUganda.
