About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


Remote Rural Schools Construction

Calendar icon
The Remote Rural Schools Construction project aims to inspire, partner with, and train more than 78,000 parents in rural and isolated villages in past (buildOn) and future project locations to be active participants in improving the quality of, and access to, education for 43,056 OOSC and 117,264 children at-risk of dropping out of primary school.

This will be achieved through participatory school and latrine construction, solar panel installation, leadership development, and community mobilization. Parent leaders will be trained formally across 481 past and 520 future project sites to help the identification and enrolment of OOSC. This initiative will not only provide sustainable learning environments for more than 43,056 OOSC and 117,264 children at risk of dropping out, but will allow parents to take an active role in improving education for their children. The project also includes annual training for local parent leaders to galvanize community commitment to education.

Long-term sustainability is intended for every school that is built. As part of the strategy to create true partnerships with the communities, the partnership aims to prepare and support communities in maintaining their schools, both in terms of the physical structure and their ability to conduct classes for children and adults. The schools that they help build and the parents they help train will continue to provide more educational opportunity for OOSC and children at risk of not enrolling or dropping out of primary school for decades to come.
