A bottle school provides a safe, clean and comfortable environment for generations of children to study. An improved level of education bodes well for the development of the community at large, especially when young girls have opportunities to stay in school longer.
Girls especially benefit
Studies show that girls who stay in school longer tend to marry later, have fewer children, provide more resources for those children, act as their children’s first educator, teach their children the value of education, cook more nutritious meals for their children, and have higher self-esteem.
Pulling communities out of poverty
Meeting the infrastructural needs for a school building is the first step in the chain of pulling communities out of poverty, by encouraging homegrown solutions to take root and flourish in an educated populace.
