Project implementation

To provide a safe learning environment for the 453 children (aged five to 12), and deal with the increasing number of students, the Acronis Cyber Foundation supported the construction of a school building in collaboration with the Swiss non-profit organization Child’s Dream. The 360‑square-meter facility features five completely-furnished classrooms and five toilets. Construction began in March 2018 and was completed in October 2018.

To create a feeling of solidarity and ensure the project was fully supported by the villagers, the local community participated in the construction process and helped to organize the opening celebration.
