In June of 2013, the US team walked on the site amidst the tall, dry grass. The government had committed $140,000 and RISE contributed $70,000, and implemented the project. The location is beautiful and very remote. . .two hours inland from the coast, and then another hour and a half over rough, dirt roads to a magnificent school that will give over 1000 children the opportunity for education.The site is strategic as homes are scattered, and the school serves as a central area. The school is finished, and the dedication was scheduled for Friday, April 4, but heavy rains made roads impassable and the dedication was postponed. People are grateful for the partnership, and friendship.

We are currently fundraising to build the Sope school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2018. This school will educate 600 children.
