|Gabonese High School|
At the request of the President, ANGT has undertaken the development and renovation of capital works for the entire education system of Gabon. This includes elementary, middle, and high schools, universities, technical and trade schools. The goal of the program? To provide access to free public education for up to 60,000 more students.
So far the work has proven more complex than anyone had imagined. The logistical challenges of mobilizing labor, materials, and equipment to numerous sites spread throughout the entire country, with one working port, and with an extremely tight delivery schedule has pushed skills to the limit. The work ranges from primary school classroom renovations to the complete design and construction of new universities, and the media attention is scrupulous.

In light of all the challenges to such an ambitious program, it is heartening to see the progress made already. The future return on investment of this program is somewhat intangible, but the benefit to the country of a vastly improved education system will positively impact the lives of everyone.
