More than Building

A frequently ask question we get is: ‘how does that work, building a school on Mali?’ It has taken us a while to figure out the right answer. Building in Mali, or any cultural context other than the Dutch for that matter, does not rely on a single magical ingredient. Perhaps the question lays bare the underlying assumption that are main aim is the designing and constructing of school buildings and wells. Of course these are our most visible activities, which SDO started out with in 1995. More than building reviews the work we have done over the last 15 years, and that has been much more than just building. The book is available in Dutch, English and French.
