PROJECT SUMMARY

Children’s House

Pedagogically-aligned school

The Kokokali (Children’s House) is founded on an alternative educational model for a rural community. The curriculum includes instruction in agriculture, farming and building construction, as well as the standard syllabus.

The school is financed by Fundación la Concepción established by a Mexican real estate entrepreneur, and will be self-built by the community. Construction of the 3,260 sq m school is planned over five phases, concluding in 2019.
