School Construction

The Malaika School provides a beautiful, environmentally conscious and sustainable learning environment for the girls it supports. New York-based studioMDA, an internationally renowned design firm, designed the beautiful school structure. Encot et Muka, a local contractor, is building the School in phases.

The primary vision for the School is to provide a space which removes barriers to girls’ ability to access a quality education, while also creating a fertile environment for young girls to thrive and develop their leadership.

The Malaika School design model was created by studioMDA.  All construction is being done by a local construction company, Encot et Muka. See the final plan for the School below.
