WHAT WE DO
Provide quality, sustainable (self sustaining) primary education for girls and boys in West Africa on a case-by-case basis.
• Build and upgrade school buildings
• Supply books and other learning materials
• Promote entreprenureship through income-generating skills training
• Work hand-in-hand with communities to develop community involvement on all levels of the project
Our first primary-school project in Dédékè, Togo is completed. The village now has six classrooms, an administration office, two cisterns for clean drinking water, and latrines and hand-washing stations.
The villagers now have a weekly market as well as a cassava mill to aid their income producing skills.
GOALS 2012 – 2013
We have been searching for another village that needs assistance and can meet our prerequisites. We have a strong candidate in a village called Tsati (cha-tee). This village is a bit more remote and has fewer students, so the project scale will be smaller. Please see the projects page for more info.

We were inspired by “Money Makes the World Go Around” from Cabaret. Our sincerest apologies to Bob Fosse, Liza Minnelli, and Joel Grey.
