This project was started with the simple goal of offering opportunities for children of all walks of life. We firmly believe that every child should have the opportunity to better their own life and during the process, positively impact the lives of those they encounter.
Togo Primary School Project
Our first large scale project is the construction of a Primary School in the Northern Region of Togo, West Africa. The village primary school was built of mud and thatch which has sustained serious damage due to weather related erosion and lack of funds to repair or rebuild. This project will consist of building a permanent concrete block school with 7 classrooms, an office, bathrooms, power and water. Below are photos of their current facilities...visit our Media page to see updates on the progress of construction and other initiatives!
