CNBLUE Helps To Build School In Africa

CNBLUE is doing more than just creating waves in k-pop. The band has also helped to establish a new school in Burkina Faso, Africa.

CNBLUE took part in a charity project that built a school in the town of Niamadougou. A portion of CNBLUE's profits from album sales and concert proceeds will go to help fund the school every year.

100 pre-schoolers and 1,000 elementary and junior high students will attend the institution which will also boast a daycare, after school center, classrooms, and facilities to serve meals.

Burkina Faso is infamous for being very impoverished in Africa, with many children not able to attend school due to the lack of funding. Many kids are forced to sell items on the streets to help chip in to their families' incomes. Unfortunately child abandonment, abuse, and exploitation are on the rise.

CNBLUE has been wanting to express their gratitude for their success by giving back in some way. They decided to take part in this project.

The school opened last month and is in session.
