Morro da Radio school
Morro da Radio is in a very poor, desperate area of Lobito, near the coast. The site is not as rural as most locations, but one where there continues to be huge need. The Ministry of Education requested that RISE build at Morro da Radio to respond to the thousands of out of school children.
A 5-classroom school was funded and built, accommodating 1344 students. A U.S. RISE team visited the school in March of 2010, celebrated with students, teachers and officials, and handed over the keys. Another team stopped by the school in July 2010 – it’s always exciting to see kids in school learning!
We are currently fundraising to build the Sope school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2018. This school will educate 600 children.
