Architect Francis Kéré has unveiled plans to build an educational campus in Kenya for the organization of president barrack Obama’s sole living grandparent. 

The ‘legacy campus’ is planned for the Kenyan village of Kogelo — the birthplace of president’s father. 

The $12 million USD project comprises an early childhood development center, primary and secondary schools, a vocational training school, and will eventually include a hospital.

The campus will primarily serve the community of Kogelo — and its 3,600 residents — but will also be a major educational resource for surrounding rural villages.

Although the schools operate independently, they are united through a variety of shared public spaces; including an auditorium, various sports fields, and a cafeteria. 

These areas will host assemblies, celebrations, and sporting events, for both the schools and the community.
