Chipindu School - buildOn
In 2014, the Signorelli Movement Foundation teamed up with buildOn to build a new school in Malawi, Africa for the 312 boys and girls in the village of Chapita.
With the shared belief that education is a basic human right, the Signorelli Movement Foundation and buildOn developed an effective school structure for the rural village in Malawi that guarantees that girls will attend the school in equal numbers as boys.
“Education is the first step in combating extreme poverty so we wanted to bring this opportunity to Malawian children, especially to its young girls who aren’t traditionally educated. As a female entrepreneur and mom to a young daughter, it was really important to work with an organization that championed gender equality. buildOn has given many women and girls their first opportunity to become educated and contribute meaningfully to their communities.”--Meredith Garrett, Signorelli Movement Foundation President.
