The local administration funded two schools in Kuito, partnering with RISE because they see RISE as trustworthy and efficient. RISE provided plans, purchased building materials and gave oversight. The need is so great that a third day shift was added to accommodate students, and a generator was purchased to hold night classes for older students.
The school at Catraio holds classes for students in grades K – 6, with 50+ students per class, meeting for approximately 3 ½ hours each. The local government also refurbished the old and damaged classrooms on the site to more efficiently accommodate the 2687 students. The school was dedicated and celebrated on June 23, 2010.

We are currently fundraising to build the Njele school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2017. This school will educate 800 children.
