School Rebuild

For children in the rural part of developing countries, education is their key to poverty reduction. However, their schools are usually located far away from major transportation arteries, and school facilities are often poorly maintained because of limited resources.

Therefore, we partner with schools that are in need of redevelopment, conduct environmental assessment and field visits, and design a new campus based on our research.

How do we choose our target schools?

  • Schools that are located in mountain ridges and far away from major transportation arteries
  • Campuses that are shabby, lack of equipment, and at a risk of collapsing
  • Classrooms with insufficient spaces for students to attend classes

New campus design

  • Designed by our architect volunteers in Hong Kong and implemented by our local engineer partners
  • All campuses contain foundation constructions made with cement and steel that are strong enough to support the buildings, greatly reducing their chances of collapsing during earthquakes
  • Contain 4-8 classrooms, where each classroom has enough windows to ensure air circulation and plenty of light for students to attend classes
