BUILDING A SCHOOL
Many communities have a great need for more accessible and improved schooling.
- A vast number of children in rural areas simply cannot access a school and will therefore not receive a formal education.
- Others will have to make perilous journeys over long distances to reach the nearest school.
The URBOND Child Education Programme is working to specifically target these and other issues which stand between children and their opportunity to receive an education.
WE'RE BUILDING A SCHOOL IN KOUTAYA, GUINEA
Koutaya is a village in the Republic of Guinea (with a population of around 3,000 people) that currently has no available schools situated locally. To attend the nearest schools children must walk distances of 5km-10km each day, with many of those also having to make a dangerous water crossing.
Charity representatives identified the significant educational shortfall within the region and moved to secure land on which to build a school to help overcome these issues. The charity is now actively working to raise support and funds with which to construct a new school and furnish it with the necessary supplies and resources.
Completing this project will vastly improve the educational opportunities for this community and make learning accessible to children who are currently very much in need.
