Chalkboards For African Kids Too Poor to Buy Paper

I am in Kpalime, Togo West Africa, and 20 dollars, roughly 10,000 CFA of the Togo money can pay a mason to make a black concrete blackboard. I would like to have 10-20 put in strategic public locations around the village, this would help children learn to write, and read. 

Exciting, we have 11 completed, and will do 4 per week, there will be a YouTube video made of all of them. to prove our value. 

I have a list o over 20 idea, innovations, inventions mean to assist people in Africa, or the world

The education system in Togo, West Africa make me angry. I was a little smart kid, who sat in the back of the class, and was ignored. But, at least I could sit there, read my books, and be a nerd.  Here, a nerd has no chance, they have no book to speak of, aagh-- It's my hope is to help give the children tools outside of school, outside the class, that allows them to self-teach, self-learn, so like me, especially the nerds can learn, and change the world. Remember, Bill Gates the founder of Microsoft is a nerd, I am a nerd, I need my books, my protection against the world.

Education will open any door, with knowledge, with the correct word, manners, one can open any door.
