Creation Bible Church in Kotu, on Sunday inaugurated a nursery school at Kotu
Quarry targeting to educate and develop skills in kids within, the community.

According to him, they began the school project two years ago and now about sixty kids are registered with free school uniform supply.
Pastor Tayo said they are also planning to create a skill center for the elders of the community especially the women, where they will be train on Tie and Die and soap making.
