Our Global Movement

In eight of the world’s economically poorest countries, buildOn empowers local residents to take the lead in bringing education and opportunity to their communities. Our sustainable approach ensures that schools are built with a community, not for a community – because the people we work with are true partners, not recipients of aid.
