Building Knowledge e.V.

About us

We founded the non-profit association Building Knowledge in November 2017. Its origin is the current school building project in Umlyngka.

Our goal is to build and develop knowledge and skills in a broad community. In addition to craftsmen and humanities scholars, our members are mainly students from the faculty of architecture. All together we want to contribute to transcultural understanding and knowledge transfer between different disciplines.

The basis of our actions is characterised by the belief that a successful project does not depend on the product, but on the way we have taken so far. The essential part of this is always the involvement of all those involved in the process. Belief in the self-efficacy of everyone is a basic prerequisite for our work.

Das gesammelte Geld wird für die Ausstattung der Klassenräume mit Schulmöbeln genutzt. Wir befinden uns zwar inzwischen in Deutschland, der Entwicklungsprozess der Möbel befindet sich jedoch im vollem Gange. Gemeinsam mit lokalen Partnern entwickeln wir gerade einen Prototypen für die Schultische und Stühle. Hoffentlich können wir bald mit den Möbeln in Produktion gehen. Die bisher angedachten Schulmöbel ermöglichen das Lernen sowohl im normalen Klassenverband, als auch das arbeiten in Gruppen.
