Charitable projects

Renovation/remodelling of a school in Suriname

BKK uses part of its income to finance charitable projects. One example is Savitri School in the district of Wanica, south of the capital Paramaribo. BKK Real Estate supports this school, together with NGO Wilde Ganzen (Wild Geese). With the support of Wilde Ganzen, BKK Real Estate has renovated and extended this Surinamese school complex.

The project is twofold. On the one hand, there is a need for a school building with 17 classrooms, an IT centre/library and a large creative area (324 m2) for 500 people. On the other hand, there is a need for classrooms for adult education – evening classes, IT courses and courses in commercial, technical, agricultural and administrative subjects. This means that the building must also be suitable for use in the evening. The project started in 2008 and is almost completed. It is very successful. At this moment the number of pupils has grown from 300 to 550 in 2011, which is a 30% increase over the last years. The photo gallery shows examples of what has been realized.
