Schools Built to Date


Students Attending

buildOn schools are providing educational opportunities to villages that have never had adequate school structures.

Senegal currently ranks 162nd out of the 187 countries on the UN Human Development Index, and the literacy rate in Senegal is just 43 percent. buildOn works to empower rural villages to break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy by constructing schools with the local community members. From the school construction site to the completed classroom, community empowerment and gender equality are cornerstones of our school construction methodology, creating a more promising future for students and villages in rural Senegal.
