overview

unguengue school and well

The 2009 US RISE team, visiting in July, had the honor of participating in the dedication celebration of the beautiful new RISE school at Unguengue. More wonderful than the building were the faces of the children, their parents and community – hope, delight and gratitude for the opportunity for education! New desks and blackboards were delivered and children began class in a school building for the first time.

As Unguengue is just off the road used to drive from the coast to Bocoio, the school is passed frequently when visiting Angola. Every time people are using the well, drilled with funds from Willow Creek Community Church, drawing clean water for their families and saving hours of walking to and from the river. Clean water is life changing, and women from the village repeatedly express their gratitude for the improved health of their children as a result.
