Charity and education nonprofit buildOn has built 2,500 schools in 25 years, empowering communities through education and opportunity.

From 25 to 2,500: Building Hope, One School at a Time

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve just completed our 2,500th school build in La Roche au Pont, Haiti! This is a huge milestone for our organization–and it’s a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team, our partners, the communities we work with, and our supporters.

Our 25th school build was in Dhadawar, Nepal, in 1999. Since then, we’ve built schools all around the world, and we’ve helped to educate hundreds of thousands of children and adults.

buildOn’s 25th school is still helping the people of Dhadawar live better, more fulfilling lives! This photo was taken in 2012 as part of our routine audits.
Our name and logo may have gotten a makeover since 1999, but we’re still transforming communities through our incredible schools. The future is bright in La Roche au Pont!

Each school that we build is a symbol of hope and opportunity for the entire community. It’s a place where people of all ages can learn and grow, and where they can dream about a better future.

We’re so grateful for the support of our community. None of this would be possible without all of you! And with your help, we can continue to build schools and empower people across the globe.
