We work closely with local authorities to obtain all relevant permits and licenses to either refurbish an existing structure or, where no such structure is available, to build a school completely from scratch.
“A solid body of research shows the cost-effectiveness of early childhood development in helping to prevent achievement gaps, boost school achievement, promote better health outcomes, improve our workforce, increase productivity, and reduce the need for costly social spending.”
Why build schools?
There are currently 90,000 children who are unable to attend preschool in Serbia.
Every child deserves to have access to a safe environment in which they can learn and play. We believe that an investment in schools for our youngest citizens is an investment that will yield the greatest possible return: healthy, productive adults who will contribute in positive ways to society. Let’s give those 90,000 children the best chance we can. Let’s give them the schools they need to thrive.
