Why implement such a project ?

In West Africa, more than 96% of schools do not have a first aid box available even though young learners spend the majority of their time at school. Accidents can happen at any time, from choking to severe allergic reactions, collapses and injuries. And unfortunately some students see their education interrupted due to trauma, an accident that occurred in their school.

The delay of the firefighters in addition to the absence of first aid worsens the situation of the victims, so the populations opt for alternatives such as taxis for the transport of the victims which also remains very delicate.
