A typical new school build

Earthquake Resistant

Every new school is built to international seismic standards after the earthquake in 2005 destroyed dozens of our schools.

Climate Sensitive

All of our schools are designed to work with the environment regulating the inside to a comfortable level regardless of the weather outside.

High Quality

Each school is a solid build, constructed to last for many years in the tough terrain surrounding it.

Modern Facilities

Our school builds include as standard a library, computer suite, science lab, staff room, and separate wash rooms for pupils and staff.

Dedicated design and construction team

We have a crack team of designers and construction specialists that oversee every new school build. Over the past ten years these super builders have pulled off amazing feats of engineering as many of our schools are built into the sides of mountains.

Before and after: Nakar Fatot School

Nakar Fatot School before construction

Old Nakar Fatot School

Many of the children at Nakar Fatot school attended open air classes in a clearing near the top of a mountain. While the views were beautiful the children were exposed to the baking sun during the summer and bitter cold winds during winter.

New Nakar Fatot School

The children now have a gleaming brand new building that they are all proud of, which keeps them safe from the elements while providing a much improved learning environment for them to thrive in.
