• our goal is to give more kids the chance to go to school!

more kids in school


We are grateful to the many donors in the U.S. and abroad for their generous support. Partnerships, which we work to develop and expand, are vital. RISE has pursued strategic in-country partnerships to build more schools through Sustainable Development Programs, and collaborates with local Administrators and the Ministry of Education.

Partnership with BP Angola…

BP Angola has partnered with RISE since 2012 – a long and successful history of working together with significant, tangible results. BP Angola has funded the construction of 19 schools, 4 community and medical centers, and 5 school libraries, impacting the lives of thousands of children, their families and communities. 

What has been accomplished?

Partnership with Educate A Child and ExxonMobil…

RISE committed to build schools to give 24,000 MORE out-of-school-children access to education through a co-funding partnership with Educate A Child (EAC), a program of Education Above All, and the generous support of one of their resource partners, ExxonMobil

What has been accomplished?

  • Schools:  26 schools were built between 9/2017 and 6/2020 (School photos and locations)
  • Students:  24,000 MORE kids will have access to education each year
  • Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E):  A substantial M&E component has been implemented, tracking the enrollment, attendance and retention of the 24,000 individual students
  • Project Investment Total:  $8,089,177
    • EAC – $999,640
    • ExxonMobil – $2,000,000
    • RISE US / Angola – $5,089,537

The project was to be completed by June 30, 2020; the schools are finished, but have been closed since 3/2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; students will be enrolled once schools reopen

Many thanks to our partners…
