Craig says that new schools make a huge difference in African communities. "Not only are more kids going to school, more girls are going to school, it lowers the rate of female circumcision. It lowers the rate of early marriages," he says. "Studies are showing that it's already turning a high economic benefit, lowering rates of HIV/AIDS."
Still, Craig says there is more work to be done. "There's no magic bullet to end poverty in the world. But if you could, the closest thing to it would be basic primary education," he says. "There are a lot more schools that need to be built in a lot more communities."
