Josef and Anni Albers and the power of education
Mar 24, 2021
The artists Josef and Anni Albers believed that everyone had a right to an education.
Without an education, children are more likely to suffer life-limiting hardships — threatening their ability to build a better future for themselves or their communities.
At Le Korsa, we honor the legacy of the Alberses by by working to ensure that every child has the right to learn. The school in Fass, Senegal, which officially opened on February 2, 2019, is the first in its region to provide education other than the traditional Quranic instruction. Now, alongside the teaching of a Quranic master, there are classes for both boys and girls in the French language and in all the traditional subjects of an elementary school curriculum.
