Coalition: Partnered with Build A School In Africa
Background: A school for the commune of M’Pessoba, composed of several villages, Danzana middle school has special impact on the girls of the area. Parents often won’t send their girls to school outside of their commune because of assault risk, so often out-of-school girls are married at a very young age. A middle school gives the girls several additional years to mature. In addition to the construction of the classrooms, Coafrica provided school supplies to this school.
