You’ve helped buy a brick to build a school in rural Zambia

Although the Zambian economy has steadily grown in recent years, the level of poverty remains stubbornly high, particularly in rural areas. Our building projects give local communities access to new school facilities, and train 20 young people in construction skills during the build process. A high quality school with 3 classrooms will use around 8000 bricks. The environmental impact and energy costs of all building projects are carefully considered, and our projects use local building materials and designs appropriate to the local context.

ABOUT BUILD IT INTERNATIONAL

Build It International is a B1G1 Worthy Cause that focuses on building the necessary skills and knowledge for people in Africa.

Skills and knowledge are the foundations upon which we all build our careers, our families and communities, our confidence and even our identities. And yet, millions of young people around the world are denied access to even the most basic schooling or skills training. Build It International trains builders. They have pioneered a simple and highly effective model in Zambia which is enabling hundreds of unemployed young people to learn essential building skills, and at the same time help to build vital schools and clinics for thousands of children.
