Club - buildOn

buildOn’s Global School Construction Program provides rural communities in developing nations with access to education. 


For 25 years, buildOn has mobilized villages in some of the poorest countries on the planet to build nearly 1,000 schools. We are breaking ground on a new school every two days with the help of parents and grandparents who have provided more than 1,500,000 volunteer work days. We are currently building schools in Burkina Faso, Haiti, Malawi, Mali, Nepal, Nicaragua & Senegal. 

Our methodology puts gender equality at the forefront and villagers in control. In many of the countries where we work, girls are not traditionally educated and there are few opportunities for adult women. buildOn’s agreement with each village ensures that girls are sent to school in equal numbers with boys and that women have access to adult education. Right now, 49% of students in buildOn schools are female.
