Ecole Communautaire Centre du Savoir
Off a dirt road outside of the town of Lascahobas you will find this Summits school in the community of Dalles. Housed in a simple and frail wooden structure, with classrooms partitioned by blackboards, it was constructed because the school’s founder saw so many children spending their days fishing in the river and resorting to roughhousing and violence.
