Let’s build a school. And decide afterwards how we will get people to actually visit it and learn something. That’s of course not what the students of the Delft University thought when they decided that they want to use their expertise to aid a Ghanian village in building a school.
But still the thought crossed my mind when I was sitting in on a brainstorm to help them come up with ideas to make sure the school will be put to good use. I was thinking that they surely started this project the wrong way around. But they are still in time to get their steps right: the school is not build yet! So we, the brainstormers, advised them to just go back some steps, get educated on the needs of the village and build from there.
Hope they succeed! Because there can’t never be enough schools!
