Ecole Communautaire Saint Marc
The school in Bintho used to be in a neighboring village before it moved to its current location. A three-hour hike up the mountain, Bintho is a wooden structure poised in the middle of waving corn fields. The school is full of eager students and a community of parents excited for their kids to receive an education. Bintho teaches us about resilience, and the importance of engagement and collaboration in communities.
