A socially sensitive and environmentally friendly initiative supporting the right for children to breathe clean air in their learning environment.
Our mission is to encourage government to pave school roads.
Sponsoring a road will help us reach our goal quickly.
In the dry season, the tiny dust particles called "particulate matter" contributes to irreversible consequences like asthma, blindness and fatalities.
White-outs make is difficult to see vehicles that may only be 4 feet away. The dust enters the open-air schools and a thick layer covers the children's desks, books, hair, clothes, and food daily.
The roads are not only dusty; they are extremely dangerous due to their poor conditions. Pot holes and loose rocks become a fatal obstacle course for some.
The cost to upkeep a vehicle is extremely high due to the punishment the vehicles takes daily. There are alternatives to paving the roads: molasses and water but they are temporary and costly options. Water is already a fragile resource and to use drinking water to water roads is an outrage.
Paving 200 meters in front of the open air schools will provide a healthy environment free of air pollution so that children can thrive.
