Let’s Build is a Norwegian foundation established to invest in and develop public school infrastructure in developing countries.
We help local governments accelerate their plans to build or renovate quality public schools for children and youth. Our investments are not done one-off nor in a vacuum. Our approach is to work hand-in-hand with local partners to ensure a total education package for students, one that ensures not only best learning environments but continued lifelong learning to benefit society over the long term.
We’re in it for the long run and have a strong focus on local ownership.
We are an international organization, our people are our most valuable resource. We aim to have local presence in all the countries we build infrastructure for learning with local people on the ground.
