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, and with the onset of the pandemic.
The school was finished in 2020, 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.
We are currently fundraising to build the Lalula school. Our goal is to begin construction in 2022. This school will educate 1000 children.
