Construction of the second TOOLS FOR LIFE school - Gouye-Ndiogou, Senegal

After TOOLS FOR LIFE constructed a school for approx. 300 children in 2012, the second school followed in 2013. This includes classrooms for approx. 800 students and has 3 residential flats that are directly joined to the main building. The teachers live on campus, which are then inhabited and are therefore less threatened by vandalism and looting.

To help the region not only with the supply of water, but also to support the regions advancement in education, TOOLS FOR LIFE, together with their partners and the people, have engaged themselves in the building of local schools since 2011.

Education is an extremely important resource in the region – especially for the girls whom in large part remain uneducated. It is not worth it to the parents to invest what little money they have in their female offspring, since these - according to the traditional role of women - are responsible for family and children, as well as field work, supplying water and taking care of the household.

The project work with TOOLS FOR LIFE has given me the opportunity to help others to help themselves and to noticeably improve their quality of life. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!

My TOOLS FOR LIFE staff trip to Senegal in 2012 was a unique experience. And the fact that I was standing on a meadow where today, after only two years, there is a school for several hundred pupils, which the Foundation helped to finance, is almost unbelievable. Great cause and great projects that make a little bit of a difference in the world.
