We are happy to let you know that we have raised the funds to build our new school.

The Orkidstudio team have arrived to start building and they are getting a team of local workers together to start the process. This is a very exciting time for Swawou as we are currently working out of a temporary structure situated behind a local market.

Here you can see the beautiful site for our new school which will have classrooms, a courtyard, a kitchen, a staffroom, toilets, secure doors, a garden and space for up to 120 girls.
