Kolda Preschool

Year: 2016
Country: Senegal

Project Description

The existing preschool in a rural village of Kolda Department, Senegal houses 85 children under a temporary thatch structure. However, because the building is not permanent and is not closed to the exterior, poisonous snakes have nested inside, exposing the children to injury and death. Each year, the building must be dissembled and the land on which it sits razed and set ablaze to reduce the population of nesting snakes. This project proposes the construction of a permanent fixed building in which to house the preschool, providing a safe and stable location in which toddlers and young children can expand their mental horizons.
