The Georges Malaika School provides a beautiful as well as environmentally conscious and sustainable learning environment for the 150 girls it supports. New York-based studioMDA, an internationally renowned design firm, donated its design to GMF in three phases. The first was completed in September, 2011, when the school first opened, and is what stands on the school grounds today. The second and third phases, also part of the original studioMDA design, will follow.Learn more about the phases of construction. Our vision is to remove barriers to girls accessing a quality education and provide sustainable solutions that create a fertile environment for young girls to thrive and become the next generation of women leaders.
