Innovative

The plan is for a 4,000 sq ft multipurpose learning center to reduce inequality (both gender inequality and economic) by creating a safe space for the more than 30,000 inhabitants of Lambaye to study, learn new skills, and make new connections.

Forward Looking

The Lambaye Learning Center has spaces dedicated to early childhood education. Studies show that pre-k programs are one of the most effective ways to set students up for future success. The LLC will foster a generation of students from Pre-K through high school and help each one achieve what ever they dream they can be.

Openness

While students will be the LLC's primary focus, all people will be welcome.  There will be an emphasis on programs that teach adults (particularly women) new, employable skills to help them achieve financial independence. Furthermore, the LLC will provide continuing education for girls whose parents cannot afford to send them to secondary school, reducing the literacy gap and fostering future educational growth in these students.
