This Little Village In Africa Contributed To A Young Boy’s Education, The Way He Paid Them Back Is So Emotional

People that have left Africa to attain an education probably want to give back to their community somehow, but the problem is always where do you start.

If you have this challenge the story of an Engineer Diébédo Francis Kéré, a native of Burkina Faso will inspire you to act.

The big idea here is he uses what is around him to empower his village. Diébédo’s amazing projects are helping the community not only build but also create income for themselves. See some of the buildings below

 

The buildings look like pieces of Art, going through them you will agree with me when I say, I cant get enough of them.
