Project Update - More than half way there

Excited to be in school
Excited to be in school

Thanks to supporters like you, we are more than half way to our goal - only $13,953 to go! Several prospective sites have been selected to begin building a new school once full funding is available. Proceeds from this project will go toward construction of a classroom in a new school. Thank you for your part in making a difference in the lives of the students who will benefit from the education they'll receive.

A team just returned from Angola, having visited RISE-built schools and witnessing the excitement of the children in class learning. The communities are grateful and the parents can now dream of a future for their children. However, our work is not done. It is estimated that between 513,000 and several million Angolan children have no opportunity for education – some “of the fortunate” school under trees, carrying their own chair, stool or can to sit on. Without a building, children learn in the hot sun, and if there is rain, cold or wind, there is no class. A school changes that and once a RISE school is complete, the Ministry of Education provides desks and chalkboards. Classrooms facilitate learning – students are more engaged, able to concentrate and serious about their studies.

Your continued support of RISE will give more kids in Angola the opportunity for education. We appreciate your partnership.
