Why Build Educational Facilities?
Developing nations face a number of hurdles in their journey from poverty and dependence on foreign aid through to self-reliance and economic and governmental stability. Access to education for the next generation is a major key to progress, and while figures indicate steadily rising percentages of children in primary school worldwide, it’s also clear Sub-Saharan Africa is drastically lagging behind the rest of the world.
Lack of resources has been identified as a major barrier to keeping up with the demand for education. Many established schools suffer from a dramatic lack of classroom space – seriously affecting their ability to teach as many kids as possible. This can be accomplished through the construction of three hundred new classrooms and the training of teachers who will be educating students in these classrooms. With an average cost of $8,000 per classroom, our budget forecast is $2.4 million. The location and cost of building materials affect costs; classrooms can cost $8,000 to $11,000.
Metrics of Impact
The cost of building a single classroom is $10,000 on average. The actual cost depends on the country and location of the school. A starter school unit, consisting of four classrooms, an office, and a storeroom, costs from $50,000 - $55,000.
As part of our committed mission of ensuring deprived communities benefit from infrastructural growth and achieving the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Number 4 - Quality Education, the TEKCHILLS FOUNDATION deemed it fit to undertake this project to provide a conducive learning environment by constructing six (6) new classrooms for Salom D/A Basic school located in the Ada West District of the Greater Accra Region of the Republic of Ghana.
