For more than three years, the TÜV AUSTRIA family has been supporting the Technical School Project in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
The school project has already had to face many challenges, but despite all the unfavorable environmental factors in Burkina Faso, the construction of the technical high school at Bethel High School in Nanoro is progressing well.
Open up future chances
The ambitious goal is to offer training in electronics, electrical engineering, civil engineering, building and architectural design, automotive engineering and accounting to provide young people, especially girls and orphans, with a good education – and thus future opportunities. The creation of a boarding school also favors school attendance from more remote areas of the country.
Project Stages 2 and 3 have started
After the completion of the administration building, the workshop, class building 1 and sanitary facilities, part 2 and 3 of the project is now starting, i.e. the buildings for the second and third classes and the dormitory buildings. Currently, the foundation works are taking place.
For the electrical supply of the project, the installation of a PV system was ordered last year. The installation is expected to begin in April. From that time on, there will also be round-the-clock surveillance of the construction site so as not to experience any unwelcome “disturbances” during the final phase of the project.
Bethel High School director Jacques Konkobo, himself a graduate of HTL Mödling, and project supporter Peter Klein, an architect from Brunn am Gebirge, again thank TÜV AUSTRIA for its support of the future project.
