Build a school in Africa

Build Africa: A story about problem solving

Since 2004, our Build a School Programme has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of children across rural Africa. Now, our powerful approach has evolved to help build entire groups of schools, giving more children the support and opportunities they deserve.

If you value education and want to do something truly incredible, help us transform a school community.

How it works

Build Africa works with government and community schools which are already in existence, allowing our approach to be sustainable and community-led. We take time to understand the needs of each community and build long-term relationships to create lasting change. 

Using our unique model, we address the needs of children at home, at school and in the community - working together with parents and teachers to overcome the barriers of poverty and inequalitiy that can stand in their children's way.

With your support, we can reach more schools than ever.
