Info about the Togo School Building

Each morning of the school year, Togolese children dressed in khaki uniforms can be seen walking proudly through the fields and down the dirt paths to their school built of mud. Four years ago, a primary school associated with a church was established by the community in the effort to provide a reliable and consistent education for its youth. With limited resources, the community built four mud structures to serve as classrooms for the students. Presently, 235 students are learning their lessons in these classrooms that continue to deteriorate rapidly with each rainfall. The funding from this project will cover the cost of most of the materials needed to build a three classroom, concrete school house with a principal’s office. The community will provide the manpower needed to clear the land and build the school and will donate various locally found materials. This building will not only give hundreds of local youth a clean and safe environment to work and learn in but will also reinforce the idea that quality education should be valued and rewarded.
