The school at Cacuaco was built in partnership with BP Oil Angola and Partners. Thousands of children are in need of a school in this area, north of Luanda. The school is built at an orphanage, Projecto Social Pequena Semente (Little Seed), who applied to BP for funding. There are 420 students, 120 that live at the orphanage, who will now have the chance to attend in their new 6-classroom school.
A dedication celebration took place on March 10th with the Vice Governor, Juvelina Imperial, and the Cacuaco Administrator in attendance, as well as representatives from BP Oil Angola, Chevron, RISE Angola, the school and community.
We are currently fundraising to build the Njele school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2017. This school will educate 800 children.
