Bela Vista school
Bela Vista, a site first visited in November 2017, was started by the government and abandoned because of lack of funds. In November 2019, the Ministry of Education asked RISE to complete it. The children have suffered and there are over 3000 kids, some in temporary tin classrooms, but all in need of a school. RISE decided to partner to move forward to complete the 15 classrooms and construction is complete, ready for students when schools reopen.
We are currently fundraising to build the Lalula school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2022. This school will educate 1000 children.
