Last fall, Paramount Equity®‘s executives spent 8 days in Mali, Africa helping to build a schoolhouse. Customers, employees and friends raised $37,000 for buildOn, an organization which builds schools in developing countries.

“As the father of three young children I believe all kids should receive a basic education to help them rise above poverty,” said Hayes Barnard, president of Paramount Equity®. “I’m elated that my co-workers and our customers share the sentiment and am so proud of our team for taking part in this incredible effort to help the world’s youth. I encourage everyone to be a good global citizen and help others any way they can.”

Here is a short video with photos and film clips from the trip:
