We saw the power of creativity and the power of ideas to put back.Mike Schalit - MAL Foundation
Through our projects and collaborations and the power of creative ideas, we aim to match a school with a brand, build a library and fill it with books to fill young minds. Our design is a sustainable, replicable and easy to erect library structure that houses almost 4000 books with a whole lot of space for children to read and write. It’s all about the math: you MakeALIbrary = you MakeALIfe.MAL
The community-based school is 82-years old.
