Clerk of Works

  • Kidepo, Uganda

In Africa, the best schools, qualified teachers, and majority of educational resources typically end up in cities and towns. The disadvantages rural schools face in accessing quality education in comparison to their urban counterparts is problematic. The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) intends to upend this paradigm. AWF aims to build modern “campuses” that are thoughtfully conceived, designed, and constructed, and give students in rural areas of Africa access to the same—if not better—educational resources as their urban counterparts.
