overview

RISE school at Tangua
The school at Tangua was funded by Team RISE 2012. It is located approximately 14 kilometers from Bocoio and has 2 classrooms and an office. Heavy rains in the Spring of 2013 made access to the site by road impossible, delaying delivery of materials. Upon completion of the school at Lucunga, the workers moved to Tangua to continue construction of this beautiful school.

In early 2013, a well funded by Willow Creek North Shore was drilled near the school site. When a US team arrived, women were using the pump, kids were playing and washing, and the tribal chief shared with enthusiasm and gratitude that there was no more diarrhea. Women no longer spend hours walking to the river carrying buckets of water for their families. The community is deeply grateful for the impact of education and clean water.
