RAG (Raise And Give) is a way that we connect teens with a cause at TeenStreet UK, to have them work together and raise funds for teens or people in difficult situations.

Through RAG we encourage teens to embrace a lifestyle of giving. Because Jesus gave it all, we get to give freely as well!

This year at Teenstreet we will be raising funds to support The Angola School Project. This is an OM project focusing on providing both academic and faith-based learning for the school children at our Primary school, El Shammah, in Angola. We’re raising £2500 to build the children a new classroom!

El Shammah Primary School:

School costs are very high in Angola, which means that many children miss out. El Shammah has a desire to make education available to all, and so sets the fees much lower.

It is not only the hope of El Shammah that students will be able to comprehend what they are learning academically, but also that they are equipped with moral principles, given an assurance of God’s tremendous, never ending, not depending on us, love, and the opportunity to become Jesus-followers who pass on the good news of the Gospel.

El Shammah Primary school currently has 340 children enrolled from pre-primary classes to Grade 4. Their prayer is to provide education to children from the age of 5 to 18 and older, from Pre-school age to Grade 9.

El Shammah is unable to welcome students for Grade 5 and above as there are no more classrooms on the site. We want to change that by raising the £2500 needed to build a new classroom.

Why get involved?

Because Jesus loves us extravagantly, we get to live out His love by helping other people, whether far or near. Getting involved will help teens make a difference as funds raised will have an impact in the lives of children and young people in Angola.

How to get involved?

Teens can get involved by joining our sponsored race; each lap is roughly 1km long and we record how many laps are run. Even if they can’t run, they can walk or support the runners by cheering them on and high five-ing them on their way round!

How to find sponsorship?

Teens can ask their parents, friends, relatives, and church members to sponsor them by donating directly on the donation page on our website. Donations can be made before and after attending TeenStreet.
