Investor Pack - Fundraising Non Profit

  2. 2. In Liberia… 80% of schools were destroyed in a 14 year long civil war 65% of primary school aged children are not in education. 50% of young people aged 15- 24 are illiterate.
  3. 3. WE ARE THE PEOPLE OF DUWEHN TOWN. With the support of Big Idea Leadership in Liberia we are building a school for our children and developing an agricultural program to sustain it.
  4. 4. Big Idea Leadership in Liberia Believes… That Leaders Create Leaders. That there is an undeniable connection between powerful service and transformational leaders. In creating sustainable impact within local communities. In the power of investment over donation. In serving rather than helping.
  5. 5. Barw’du School is… A school built by the community, for the community. A collaboration between local and global communities. A school that in 20 years time will have inspired an alumni of past students to return and sustain it. The hub of the community offering adult learning, community group meeting place, a space for extra curricular activities and home to sporting events. Where healthcare education is led by example, in that hygiene education and a balanced diet from healthy sustainable food sources is encouraged. Embodying a culture that is supportive of diversity and equality for all and learning skills are diverse, including essential trades and not purely academic.
  6. 6. A Community Speaks "The school is important because we will not be covering longer distances for education and my life will be different because what I will learn there I will put it to practice so that it will change my life." Youth - Gertrude Saywon "The school is important because it will open our eyes and connect us to the world and my life will change because if you learn something today, it can benefit you tomorrow" Woman - Hannah Whea "The whole township will improve when the school is built; my children will attend good school like others in America. It will improve our lives and what we didn't see; our children will now see and be the light for our town ship." Elder - Victor Duwee "The school is so important for the students and the teachers, because we the teachers are also learning. If the community don't learn anything to improve their lives, it will be threat to the community as it is. Once the school is built and operational and my children are there, my life, and family will positively change because education is light" Teacher - Alexander B. Titus

  9. 9. Barw’du School The government of the County of Grand Bassa in Central Liberia has granted a 52 acre parcel of land to be dedicated to the vision of a future sustainable community. The site is 10 miles from the heart of Buchanan--the third largest city in Liberia, with a population of approximately 35,000—and one mile from the main road that links Monrovia to Buchanan. It is accessed through the gravel road that leads to Duwehns’s town, a small rural village. The school will be built in the Northernmost part of the site, adjacent to the existing gravel road The vision for the 52 acre site contemplates the future development of a technical school for trade oriented occupations with an emphasis on agriculture and self sustaining activities. In addition, the master plan will include housing villas for teachers and students. The rest of the site will be allocated to agricultural fields. Grand Bassa County BuchananCentral Liberia, Africa Duwehns’ Town
  10. 10. A Self Sustaining Vision… A technical school for trade oriented occupations with an emphasis on agriculture and self sustaining activities, permaculture. The master plan includes housing components for teachers and students and an agricultural project to contribute to sustainability. Materials are all locally sourced and many will be generated by simple on site production methods. A water tower will capitalize on the ample water supply on site and serve the needs of the community as it develops Classroom openings are screened but not glazed which will maximise cross ventilation. A double roof system keeps the classrooms cool and airy and the large overhangs of the metal roof will protect the space and building from sun and heavy rain. Electrical power is scarce in Liberia, mostly supplied by fuel generators. Provisions will be made for solar panels to be installed on the corrugated zinc roof as a potential source of energy.
  11. 11. A Community Led Project… The community leads on the project, coached and mentored by BILL. We, the community, have our own skills and expertise, we complement those by inviting collaborators to contribute their skills and expertise to the community. Regular consultation and town hall meetings ensure that the wider community are engaged and motivated to support the project. There is a community committee and an NGO team in Liberia, homegrown and home led – our aim is for the cycle of aid to be broken. In the interests of progress, the community committee contributes our time and effort voluntarily.

  22. 22. Barw’du School In July 2016 Jaya Kader, a Miami based architect flew to Liberia and met with the community, local construction material companies and engineering contractors. We couldn’t have envisaged the design that she created following that trip. Sustainable, sympathetic to its environment and a thing of beauty! It’s no wonder our architectural designs are award winning…
  23. 23. SITE PLAN 0’ 5’ 10’ 20’ 1 Entry Pavilion 2 Water Tower 3 Administration Building 4 Crops Sculpture 5 Elementary School 6 Middle School 7 High School B B AA Barw’du School School Site Plan The school site plan involves a semicircular entry pavilion with the water tower and administrative office to either side. All three educational clusters— elementary, middle and high schools-- are organized around a landscape sculpture which is on axis with the entry and inspired by the geometry of the Flower of Life.
  24. 24. Barw’du School Floor plan As the local population will participate in the actual construction of the project, it was important to standardize the geometry to facilitate lay involvement. Each school cluster consists of two wings of equally shaped spaces. The larger wing houses 6 classrooms and the smaller one includes two multipurpose rooms, a kitchen with associated storage areas, and an outdoor dining pavilion. Given the open air ventilation of the project, bathrooms are required to be separate from the main structure, accessible through a covered passage.

  27. 27. Barw’du School Entry Pavilion The semicircular entry pavilion greets visitors as they approach the site. With the water tower as the focal object on one side and administrative office on the other, the outdoor pavilion serves as the welcoming structure for the complex. Entry Path Upon passing through the entry pavilion, the three school clusters are organized around the central sculptural landscape inspired by the Flower of Life geometry. Each segment of the intersecting circles of the flower will be planted with a sampling of the agricultural crops that will be harvested on the rear of the property.
  28. 28. Barw’du School Classrooms The classrooms are open and airy. They provide a warm and pleasant environment with the local clay brick walls, openings that afford abundance of natural light and ventilation. Local bamboo will be used for the sloped ceilings. Dining Hall The open dining area is clad in the same materiality as the classrooms, with a total open front and back.
  29. 29. Barw’du School Courtyards The courtyard spaces within each cluster are flexible in nature and will adapt to the different school populations--elementary, middle school or high school. They provide playground opportunities for the younger students or gathering areas for older groups. Loggias The large loggia provides under cover gathering spaces for students as well as visual access to the courtyards.
  30. 30. Barw’du School Agricultural Sculpture The Flower of Life Landscape sculpture, will constantly serve as reminder that only through working the land and creating an agricultural self-sustaining community will the school be able to thrive. Education in Liberia is not free and only available to the small percentage of the population that can afford it.
