Greenschool

Turning schools into social enterprises

In order to guarantee decent living and studying conditions for the students, Wallah We Can developed a model, at a boarding school in Makthar, Governorate of Siliana, which ensures energy independence and food self-sufficiency. These two factors generate profit, which is reinvested in educational and recreational infrastructures.

This sustainable and ecological project also allows offering some students’ parents employment in the fields that produce fruit and vegetables to the school canteen. Our Greenschool operates according to the following pattern: a social, ecological and solidarity-based enterprise, which implements a virtuous cycle benefiting the whole family.

Wallah We Can supports schools implementing a project-based pedagogy resting on 4 areas: health, education, food and energy. These schools can apply for certification / a labelling system to promote their approach and become a Greenschool in turn.
