Funds raised through the June 2014 Open Challenge will be used toward the construction of a new 5-classroom primary school in the village of Sibol, Benguela Province, Angola. Construction of the new school began in June, and with funds raised in the GlobalGiving Open Challenge, we will be able to complete the building. Thanks to all who took part in giving 25 kids in Sibol the opportunity to go to school, to learn to read and write.

The village of Sibol is about 7 kilometers from the town of Bocoio, home of our RISE Angola National Director. There is an existing school structure of mud block, which is falling apart and unsafe for the kids. Funding from RISE and a corporate partner in Angola has provided for a new building. There are 502 children at the primary school level from Sibol as well as other surrounding villages, and an additional 200 at the grade 7 - 9 level. Currently 24 teachers instruct these children under trees and in the dilapidated structure.. 

The children are excited about their new school. Construction should be completed by the end of September when a dedication and celebration will take place. The school will be turned over to the community and the Ministry of Education, who will provide desks, chalkboards and some textbooks, as well as hire and pay teachers..
