Tessaout Valley villages share existing governmental schools, which can be frequented by children, boys and girls, among the ages of 6 and 12. Sometimes, children, have to travel long distances to get to school. The Government is in charge of building them, but the communities are responsible for their conservation. Nowadays, we find much deteriorated schools without any kind of material to develop the educative labor of teachers. Pre-preparatory education is not envisaged, and secondary education, after 12 years old, is not favored.
General Objetives of our Project

There have been a series of petitions from valley villages as a consequence of the observed results in the villages where the project has been implemented. It is our intention to start the project in one or two villages per year, hoping that it is slowly generalized in the whole Tessaout Valley. The rate of development will be determined by the financial soundness of the foundation.
