School and Library Construction
ADC has rehabilitated and constructed schools, libraries and teachers housing in rural areas in Liberia and Uganda. These schools were built in areas affected by years of civil war. ADC collaborates with the Ministry of Education in these countries to address areas in most need. ADC has worked with local community members to build furniture such as desks and benches for the schools. These ADC-run construction projects aid in the peace building process by hiring local labor. The libraries are based at local secondary schools and are utilized by the students during the day, and by community members at night. Libraries have solar panels that charge the batteries which operate the lights at night, important in rural areas that are off the electric grid. Each library has over 3000 books, including encyclopedias, dictionaries, textbooks, general nonfiction and novels.
