Architecture as a catalyst

type:Donation, Project
by:Ama Lorenz

KÉRÉ ARCHITECTURE is first and foremost a social instrument: its cultural, economic and ecological building solutions are always underpinned by a social process. With the objective of combining his knowledge as a western trained architect, and traditional building methods from Burkina Faso, Francis Kéré is setting up an infrastructure that enables people to have access to education, which is the key to development.

To finance projects in his home village of Gando, Francis Kéré set up the association Francis Kéré Foundation (formally Schulbausteine für Gando.)

With your financial support and the commitment of the community, they can develop sustainable projects and help build a more promising future for the people of Gando in Burkina Faso.

The Francis Kéré Foundation is a registered charity in Germany.
