The first primary school in Gando - a small wonder
How the Kéré Foundation's first school helped improve education for a whole region.
Thanks to the comfortable teachers' accommodation in the village, lessons can now take place every day.
The Primary School Extension
Since the construction of the Primary School Extension, 700 children can now attend primary school in Gando.
School library - education for all
The school library enables access to education not only for students but also for adults.
Naaba Belem Goumma Secondary School
With the Naaba Belem Goumma Secondary School in Gando the children finally have access to higher education after finishing Primary School. Five of the twelve classrooms are already completed.
We grow our own vegetables!
The ingredients for the school lunches are always fresh and healthy: the children grow them in their own school garden.
Mango tree-plantation - sustainable reforestation
Get involved! Plant your own mango-tree and directly take part in our local mango tree plantation project.
Songtaaba Women's Center
The center for the Songtaaba women's cooperative is the heart of the village. Help to finish this project.
We are building a research center to foster creative exchange between tradition and modernity.
One of our latest projects is a big underground rainwater reservoir to ensure the irrigation of our tree nurseries and participate in the reforestation of the region. Read more about it and support this project!
Sanitation and Hygiene
An important part of a good health system is access to proper sanitation. We are building latrines for 1000 school children.
First Aid Center in the village
We urgently need a new community health center to provide first aid and preventative care for the new mothers of Gando. Support this project.
