150,000 Bricks

150,000 Bricks

Price: £2,401.00

When building new schools in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Children in Crisis uses bricks that have been fired either on or very close to the site of the new school. This generates income locally for those making the bricks on site and saves on transport costs and so makes the bricks very good value indeed, costing less than 2 pence each. With £2,401 you could help buy 150,000 of these bricks. On average, that’s enough bricks to build a complete school!

With these bricks Children in Crisis, our partner organisation Eben-Ezer MI, and the local communities like Mugorore construct school buildings that are the pride of the area. With 6 classrooms, a teacher’s office and a covered outdoor meeting area the schools can provide a place for up to 540 children to learn. The schools also act as a hub for the local communities, a place where meetings and adult education classes can be held after school hours. Put simply, these bricks build schools that transform the communities that they serve. Not just another brick in the wall.
