overview

caala school
Students and faculty from six US high schools – Glenbrook North, Ironwood Ridge, Maine West, Prosser, West Chicago Community and Wheeling – spent hours planning, hosting fundraisers and raising money to make a difference in the lives of children in Angola. The funds they raised were combined to build a school at the village of Caala, outside of Balombo.

A US team visited the site in March, 2010, and another in July, spending the day working at the site. Caala was finished, celebrated and dedicated on November 11th, 2010, which is Independence Day in Angola. Over 500 children, who schooled under trees and in a small church building, are excited to have classrooms in which to meet, protected from sun, wind and rain…and are grateful for the efforts of those who have worked to make their dream a reality!
