What we do

Build Africa has one ultimate goal: Every child in school. Every child learning.

We believe in the power of education to help end poverty. We work to give children the education they need and fight the inequalities that stand in their way.

We partner with remote and rural communities where children are forced to drop out or leave school without vital basic skills. Outside of the classroom there are huge inequalities to overcome, including poverty, discrimination and cultural attitudes that can prevent many children from having the chance to learn in the first place.

We have over 20 years' experience of fighting poverty through education and working with communities at a grassroots level to address the unique problems their children face.

Our unique approach helps parents and teachers to create sustainable, effective schools and to nurture their children's learning. Every child deserves a good education.
