RISE has had a solid partnership with the Cubal Administration and Ministry of Education since 2011, and has built several schools together. Lonjombele is in a very rural area, with hundreds of children in need of a school. Construction of an 8-classroom school was started in September 2019, and there were challenges and delays throughout the rainy season.
The school was finished, and dedicated on September 17, 2021, in a joyous celebration. The community, teachers, parents, and children are thrilled and grateful to have a school, clean water, and access to education!
Well drilled at site.
