Summary

Every child has the right to education. RISE builds primary schools in rural Angola to educate children, empower communities, and contribute to the rebuilding of the country. We target vulnerable and marginalized children who have been impacted by years of war and its aftermath, those living in poverty that face multiple barriers to education, and deserve the basics that all children deserve.

Challenge

A Portuguese colony for nearly 500 years, Angola endured a war for independence and a brutal 27-year civil war ending 2002. The conflict left its infrastructure decimated; its people displaced and suffering, without healthcare, clean water, and education. The majority of the Angolan population lives in extreme poverty, subsisting in urban slums or remote rural areas. Some children school in makeshift classrooms, others meet under trees; yet over 2 million have no access to primary education.

Solution

Every child has the right to education, the driving force behind any strong economy, and key factor in social and economic growth and well-being. RISE builds critical infrastructure, a fundamental starting point, providing access to education. RISE works to address the unique challenges faced by girls in particular, ensuring safe, inclusive, quality structures, centrally located within the community, with bathrooms and clean water. Your help will give more kids the opportunity to go to school.

Long-Term Impact

Schools provide access to education for children, year after year. Education improves health, results in jobs, and empowers individuals. Educated children better understand their rights, advocate for themselves and their families, and are less likely to fall victim to exploitation. They are more engaged in community issues, more apt to vote, take action, and develop into leaders who tackle problems that impact the future of their families, communities, and country.
