Three continents –
one guiding principle: to promote schooling.
Despite the three projects in question being geographically far apart, they are linked together by one notion: that only the opportunity of a good school education can help people escape misery.
Nepal: Construction of a new primary school in Keraghari.
Thanks to a generous donation from the Margarete Müller-Bull Foundation, a dream has come true for the pupils, teachers and entire community of Keraghari: the school has finally been able to move from its barn-like barracks to a purpose-built new building. The opening ceremony took place on 10 October 2012 and was attended by over 500 village residents. Each pupil was also given a baseball cap, funded by donations from the Elektror company.
DR Congo: A school for the Babemba tribe.
In 2012, the decision was made to fund the establishment of a school for the Babemba tribe in Kipusha. The official opening of the school is planned for 2013. We will provide more detailed information about this at a later date.
Honduras: Helping girls escape the cycle of poverty.
The Christian congregation of the Sisters of Mary has set up a school project on the edge of Honduras’s capital, Tegucigalpa, for girls from very poor backgrounds. The schools and training workshops at the ‘GirlstownTegucigalpa’ enable some 400 girls to graduate from school and thereby to secure themselves the necessary pre-requisites for a good job and solid income. The Margarete Müller-Bull Foundation was involved with this comprehensive project by donating computer equipment.
