Building Housing for Teachers

Construction of housing for teachers is now underway! Supplies have arrived in the village and bricks are being laid! Support of the teachers is very important to the quality of education in Konkourona. In Burkina Faso, the government assigns teachers to villages anywhere in the country, often placing them hours away from their spouses and their children. The current housing offered in Konkourona is a single, two-room structure for 7 teachers. Teachers often leave the village to find better working conditions as soon as they can.
