In 2017, Better Globe helped finance the purchase of a building where the former owner ran a secondary school. It opened up this year after renovation and now the new school has opened its gates.

Part of the money from donation package purchases goes towards what we call school activities. This includes financing of renovation, construction and purchases of school buildings. Last year, a school owned by another organization went bankrupt.

Better Globe lent the money that the charity organization Child Africa (an NGO) needed to buy the building in 2017. After some renovations, the school could open in the spring of 2018 under Better Globe’s direction. As we have mentioned before, we do not run any schools ourselves, since we are a forest company.
