The electricity supply in the region is very unreliable, therefore to ensure that the school has a regular and reliable electricity supply the board of AEP has approved funding for solar panels and a generator. A reliable electricity supply is essential especially for the science and computer labs.
Due to the very hot climate in Northern Nigeria the computer labs also need air conditioning units to ensure that the equipment does not overheat. Because of the irregular electricity supply, the solar panels are an essential addition to ensuring the proper environment for the computer labs.
The 2017 WAEC results from Graceland International School are in, we are very pleased to report that our students again did very well in these important exams. 84 students entered, 79 passed with enough credits that enable them to enter institutions of higher learning.

Graceland International Clinic to open adjacent to Graceland International School.
During our week in Gusau at Graceland International School, Bishop John Danbinta took time to give a tour of Grace International Hospital, currently under construction. As Gusau is a capital city, a small clinic would not suffice, so a large hospital facility is in the works. The hospital will provide not only basic medical care but surgery and maternity services as well. Being branded under the school name will strengthen the connection between medical care and education. Students from the school will be able to get first-hand experience in the medical fields by walking through the gate.
This is an ambitious project that has received funds from Kateri Medical Services, Inc., another NGO based in Tarriffvile, CT. The plan is to have a dedication of the Graceland International School examination hall and the hospital in October of 2018. Plans are underway for a medical outreach program at the new hospital facility during that time as well.
