cost and return

→    What does it cost?

→   Cost per child = $350
→   Cost per classroom = $35,000
→   Cost per school = $140,000 – $280,000

→    ROI – What is the return on investment?

The cost of a school varies depending on the number of classrooms, which can be from 4 to 8, depending on the number of students in the village, and the needs of the community. Each classroom accommodates about 50 students, and there are generally two shifts a day. The cost is to get the school built, but children will be in those classrooms for the next 25 or 30 years, which breaks down to about $14 per student per year – an amazing return on investment.

Laying of the first stone

 

We are currently raising funds to build a school at Sope in the Cubal municipality of Benguela. Our goal is to begin construction in 2018. This school will educate 600 children. Construction is expected to begin in early 2018.  

 

 
  • Our Angolan team casts vision, identifies the location and oversees the process
  • Materials are purchased and delivered
  • The building team works to construct the school
  • The community participates, carrying water, stone and materials
  • The government delivers books, desks and chalkboards
  • There is a dedication, celebration and immense gratitude
  • The Ministry of Education hires and pays the teachers
  • Kids go to school, this year and every year!
