Welcome to the Alliance for International Monasticism
Project 3149 - The Renovation of a small House for Guests
Benedictine Monks of Iwuru (Nigeria)
At the insistance of the bishop, a friend of the community, the monks of Ewu-Ishan took over a little foundation in the extreme East of the country. This foundation was the project of a diocesan priest who had made his noviciate at Ewu-Ishan, but the foundation did not succeed in developing.
Five monks of Ewu-Ishan were sent to Iwuru, which in 2018 became a cell of the monastery.
In 2020 there are already four novices and four aspirants.
The foundation of Iwuru owns 400 acres of agricultural land with a large complement of palm tees, plantains, bananas and cocoa. The brothers have begun production of palm-oil and a small piggery.
In the property there were already two small houses intended for guests, one with five rooms, the other with four. A large amount of renovation is needed to improve the rooms and the sanitation, which would need financial help.
Requested amount: € 6,940
