Construction Projects Manager Let’s Build Foundation

We have started building our professional LinkedIn page. Follow

Let’s Build is starting an office in Zambia and will be setup as an INGO and is affiliated to Let’s Build Foundation; a global non-profit organization founded in Norway in 2020.

We are impartial, neutral, independent, and united by our common vision: A classroom for everyone.
Our mission: We build classrooms to increase children and youths’ enrolment in secondary education.

Let’s Build cooperate with local Government to improve public secondary education infrastructure. Our work is focused on the construction of classrooms in public secondary schools through local contractors and communities. We believe well designed and built classrooms help to increase attendance, improve student outcomes, support better teaching, and reduce student dropouts. We have a local presence in the countries we work, and we collaborate to maximize our impact. When our construction is complete, we handover the classrooms to local Government. Let’s Build strives to be a trusted partner for communities, government, and education stakeholders.
