build. educate. empower.
RISE builds primary schools in rural Angola to educate children, empower communities and contribute to the rebuilding of the country.
Every child has the right to education. We target vulnerable and marginalized children, those living in poverty that face multiple barriers to education, and deserve the basics that all children deserve – food, safety, healthcare, education, and clean water. Education is at the heart of better economic opportunities, healthier families, individual freedom, and empowerment.
“Education is a powerful driver of development and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty, raising incomes, promoting economic growth and shared prosperity, and for improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability.” World Bank Grouplearn more
