With much growth, thousands of children are in need of schools on the outskirts of Kuito. A 5 classroom L-shape school was built at Camalaia, with help from the local community. The school was dedicated in February 2010, amidst celebration and gratitude.
A US team arrived to visit Camalaia in July 2011 to find the beautiful RISE school being used. However, there are 1828 students and not enough room to accommodate them all, so 10 outside “classrooms” with a tin roof (chapa) covering, have been added. There is a real hunger for education.
In 2015, the local government is building another school next to the RISE school to accommodate more students with additional classrooms – great news for the kids and community!

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