The village of Gando is a village of approximately 3000 inhabitants, situated roughly 200 km to the south east of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The village doesn't have running water or electricity, and is composed of small mud huts with tin or
straw roofs that are gathered together in community groups.
The purpose of the Teachers' Housing is to attract teachers to the countryside. It is situated at the southern end of the school's property, and consists of adaptable modules approximately the same size as habitation in the village. Modules can be combined in various ways to suit the needs of families and groups. The roofs are barrel vaults constructed from earthen bricks. The entire structure is generally composed of locally sourced materials.
