Vacaria (Chimbassi) school
A beautiful, new school at Vacaria (formerly known as Chimbassi) funded by BP Oil and partners, was dedicated in February 2013. This school has 8 classrooms, offices and bathrooms, and is changing educational opportunities in the area. People know the story of those in the U.S. wanting to help and about the family that saved money to be able to give them the well and clean water. They shared that “there was nothing – we were desolate and desperate, and within a few short months, we have a beautiful new school and well. We never would have dreamed how our lives would change! We are happy and grateful – thank you!”

We are currently fundraising to build the Sope school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2018. This school will educate 600 children.
