overview

Grinding over a rural dirt road, team members from RISE and ExxonMobil, along with local government officials, pulled up to a gathering of kids, teachers, parents and community members, to lay the first stone for an 8-classroom school at Sope. Funds donated at the 2017 Benefit were combined with those from the local Administration and the ExxonMobil Foundation, as part of our partnership with Educate A Child, to build this school. Construction began in June 2018, and was completed in November. The school will be dedicated at the start of the school year in February 2019, and children will have access to education in their beautiful new school.
