At home or abroad, buildOn’s goal is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. In the U.S., buildOn empowers urban youth to transform their neighborhoods through intensive community service and to change the world by building schools in some of the economically poorest countries on the planet. Internationally, buildOn is breaking ground on a new school every two days in Burkina Faso, Haiti, Nicaragua, Nepal, Senegal, Malawi, and Mali. Our students have contributed over 2 million hours of service in the U.S., and have helped build more than 1300 schools around the world. For more information, visit buildon.org.
