Coafrica Value Spotlight #2: Engage the Community
From start to finish, Coafrica works hand-in-hand with the communities we serve. Community leaders and parents request assistance to build additional classroom capacity through our team of local program coordinators. They present their plan for community contributions and project maintenance. Coafrica works in coalition with local communities to realize their vision for educating their children.
Coafrica requires a community match of 20% of the value of the project. Some ways our communities have fulfilled this obligation include: clearing the land, digging the foundation, site security, water support, new or upgraded bathroom facilities, materials supplies, unskilled labor and funding where possible.
We love our communities and love the enthusiasm they show for their classrooms and the education of their children!
