Education is for SDO the key point to improve the quality of life in the Dogon area. These people live around the impressive cliffs of Bandiagara in Mali, Africa. Because of their unique culture and ancient traditions, this area is listed as UNESCO World Heritage.

The local population is actively involved in the process. Exchange and transfer of knowledge is seen as an important building block for the future. Order the book “Beyond Construction” of the work of the foundation! The proceeds will be donated to the foundation.
