A Dime Makes A Difference

May 2015

To construct a simple school building in the poorest areas, approximately 33,000 bricks are needed. One brick costs 40 Ariary ($0.02) One dime buys 5 bricks.  Total cost for bricks $660. Parents gladly provide the labor. 

Bricks are just the first priority. Each construction project needs other materials (metal roofing, cement, etc.) and classrooms need supplies and simple furnishings.  

Buy 5, 10 or 20 bricks. The cost is little and the educational rewards for the children of Madagascar are great!
