Build a School – Save a Generation
Each finished school includes:
1. 150 students per year educated perpetually
2. Name Your School
3. Three Classrooms
4. 6 latrines (3 boys, 3 girls)
5. Headmaster’s office and storage
6. Desks and blackboards
Each village is required to pay 20% for their school, donate the land, and provide some manual labor to aid in its completion. The Mali Government has agreed to pay ongoing teacher wages for every school that Empower Mali builds.
Our schools are made of Adobe dried into bricks. Our contractor then constructs a 3-room classroom, a headmaster’s office, a latrine for boys and girls. The exterior is covered in a thick mud stucco and then painted to give additional protection from weather. Each classroom in the school can fit up to 50 students. Schools typically take around 3 months for our contractor to construct. A dedication is held by the village to show gratitude for its completion.
