China State Construction is building schools near the equator, improving educational conditions in Gabon, a country in central and western Africa.

Covering areas of 60,000 and 24,000 square meters, the two construction projects, Alibandeng and Cap Estérias, are located in Greater Libreville, Gabon.

The Alibandeng comprehensive school project can accommodate about 2,000 primary and middle school students, making it easier for students living nearby to go to school.

The Cap Esterias Middle School program can accommodate about 700 middle school students, making education possible for students in remote forest areas.

Both projects started on Oct 1, 2020. The Alibandeng project is expected to be completed in 2021 and the Cap Estérias project has completed in November and is expected to come into service soon.
