This 12 classroom secondary school, funded by BP and Partners and built by RISE, sits on the edge of town. It has offices, a library space, bathrooms, a basketball court and a well.
Dedicated in April 2014, the Provincial Governor attended and was impressed, seeing the building and students. BP officials were very pleased, the day was filled “with glory and excitement” and the school will transform the educational opportunities in Bocoio.
Additionally, a grant from BP Angola provided for the establishment of a library at the school in April 2017. Students were captivated and excited as they have never seen, nor been to a library – they love the library, and access to books and resources as this has never been possible!
Well drilled at site, funded by BP Angola
We are currently fundraising to build the Sope school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2018. This school will educate 600 children.
