  • Description of Project

The Combu School has 75 children and is located in a remote area deep in the Amazon jungle.

The project aims to improve the children’s learning through a better infra structure because every child has the right to study in favourable conditions for their intellectual development, being respectable citizens.

The windows will help to keep away the mosquitoes that sometimes cause the interruption of lectures, disturbing children and teachers. This will provide a safer environment and physical and mental well being for everybody.
