US-based CEO Marc Friedman from Build On, an NGO that has built over 700 primary schools in rural villages in Senegal, Malawi, Mali, Burkina Faso, Haiti, Nepal and Nicaragua offered to share the charity’s unique methodology with Afrika Awake. This will help to ensure the success of the project.
The estimated cost is USD 30,000-35,000 based on Build On’s average budget for a primary school consisting of three classrooms with a total size of 2,500 square feet. A small high school is still under discussion.
A new home was built for the family in Vuka Village in 2012 thanks to Gabriel Hertis, one of Afrika Awake’s founders, with the help of BMF students and members of MCB.
