Dear Build a School in Africa supporters – I’m happy to share with you a few photos from Director Judy Lorimer’s visit to Mali in November 2017. Judy helped start construction of two new schools in the villages of Kodialanida and Nolabougou, visited several schools we had built since 2011, and visited two communities that have requested funding for new schools.
The two schools begun in November are now completed and in operation. Since then, we have also begun construction of a new school in the village of N’Dalen.
New school building in Kodialanida, begun in November 2017. There are three new classrooms in Kodialanida.
The family that funded the entire school also donated funds for solar panels for one classroom, so children and teachers could do homework or work on curriculum plans in the evenings.
