Empowering the Right to Education in Korhogó, Ivory Coast.
This project is part of a process of improving education in Korhogó, through a commitment to comprehensive quality education. To this end, it seeks to improve the infrastructure of the Marcellin Champagnat School. It is requested to respond to the needs of access to secondary education for the students of this city and especially for adolescents and young people from the Petit Paris neighbourhood. This objective will be achieved with the construction of a block with 5 classrooms, an additional room and toilets for secondary school pupils. In this way, the students will be able to complete their secondary education and obtain an education that will enable them to enter university or enter the world of work with good prospects of success.
