Maris are working with Giving Africa, AEAD and Article 25 to design, improve and expand the infrastructure, facilities and curriculum of Bethel Secondary school in Gourcy, a town to the north of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, West Africa.

Maris' Chairman, Michael Howard, commented, "This is such a fantastic opportunity to really help a whole nation. I was privileged to meet Craig Goldblatt, a pioneer in this area, and together believe we can really make a difference. We intend to send our team members to Burkina Faso to get involved in the building of the school and teaching the students, ensuring it has a robust sustainability programme."
Giving Africa's Founder, Craig Goldblatt, commented, "It is with great pleasure that Giving Africa can announce that we have such a wonderful new partner in Maris.
We are an England & Wales registered charity whose vision is "An Africa whose children have the opportunity to create empowered communities and live healthy and prosperous lives."
