Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

The RNBA (Rongmei Naga Baptist Association) wants to develop a holistic approach to education that serves the needs of their community. Many children from the area currently go out of their villages to seek an education in overcrowded government schools. These students do not receive a quality education, and their absence negatively impacts their families/communities. EMI has the privilege to partner with the RNBA to develop a master/zoning plan for a 50-acre school/community development campus in the beautiful hills of Manipur.

Project Scope

RNBA's goal is to create an enabling environment for children to explore their talents with a focus on value-based education and skill development. Our EMI team will provide documents for the campus infrastructure, master planning, and a phased build-out approach, which will span across many years.

The architectural team will be developing phase one building designs (i.e., school buildings, staff/student accommodation, and vocational training workshops).

The civil/survey team will complete a broad topographic survey of the site to facilitate the master planning process and create a civil/landscape strategy for the whole campus to inform the master plan and future infrastructure needs.

Will you pray and consider joining us in designing a world of hope for RNBA and giving hope back to the children of Manipur?
