Project Report | Dec 14, 2022
Thanks for Giving!

By Lynn Cole | Executive Director

Greetings-

Thanks for your generous support, giving more kids in Angola access to education! Many of you donated to RISE through GlobalGiving's site on GivingTuesday. GivingTuesday is a day that encourages people to do good, a movement created in 2012 to unleash the power of radical generosity around the world. GlobalGiving offered a $1,200,000 Incentive Fund to match the day's donations. You gave $28,650 to RISE and the proportional match totaled $10,158, which will give even more kids the chance to go to school!

Every child has the right to education, but that is not the reality for over two million children in Angola who do not have the chance to go to school. Schools make a difference, providing a safe place to learn, a place of opportunity and hope for the present and the future. At the school opening at Bairro Novo in September, the Director of Education said that "education is the best service to render to communities, as it is the foundation for transforming the society." We are grateful for the immense good that has been done, and the opportunities provided to children that now have access to education. 

As a result of your generosity, this project has been fully funded and over 300 more kids will have the chance to go to school every year, for many years to come. Yet a huge need remains... a new project will be set up, and together we will continue to help make a difference in the lives of children and their families through education.
