buildOn has released a report thanking Misha Malyshev and outlining the impact funding and volunteer hours can have on breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations.
Misha Malyshev and Teza Technologies have enjoyed a successful partnership with buildOn that has impacted the lives of many students, teachers and parents. A $150,000 donation by Misha and his wife has resulted in the building of five schools, two in Africa and three in Central America.
The two Central American schools were built in Nicaragua, one of which was in the Jiquelito Village.
LOS PINOS SCHOOL, JIQUELITO VILLAGE:
“ It will be a 100% turnaround. We were at a very low point with the old school. With this school there’s going to be a big change, we’ll have a good structure, which we didn’t have, plus the kids will be able to study comfortably. As a community we wished for a school with these features and of this quality for a long time. We wanted somebody, anybody to help us: the government or someone else. Thank God we could fulfill this dream with the help of buildOn. All the villagers and the teachers are really excited about this project.”
– Francisco Ramón Zeledón Aráuz, 33 years old, Village Leader
The three African schools were built in Malawi across three villages. The photo below shows the school before and after in Nthumbo Village.
