Schools Built to Date


Volunteer Work Days

buildOn’s Mali schools have the capacity for roughly 35,000 students annually, as well as adults who participate in literacy, health, and income-generating classes.

The 5th poorest country in the world according to the UN’s Human Development Index, Mali also suffers from one of the globe’s lowest literacy rates at 31.1%, and only 20.3% for females. Economic development has been a challenge due to the abundance of subsistence farmers in the nation whose livelihood is continually threatened by drought and wavering crop prices. Because of buildOn’s work, the rural regions of Sikasso, Kalikoro, and Segou now have access to hundreds of classrooms and latrines.
