Thousands of children in Angola still long for the chance to go to school, and RISE continues to raise money to build schools to give children access to education, year after year. Participation in GlobalGiving's July 14th Bonus Day wonderfully multiplied the impact - $9,200 was donated to RISE, with an additional $3,000 in matching funds from GlobalGiving (the max for each organization), which totaled $12,200 raised! Those generous gifts will give 35 children the opportunity to go to school for the first time.
We doubled the project goal to now give 200 kids access to education, and are more than halfway to reaching that target. These funds will contribute to the building of a 10-classroom school at Bairro Novo, where over 1,000 children have never had a school. Every gift makes a difference, and we are so grateful for your part!
