EDUCATION INITIATIVE

Sending a child to school changes the future. 

 
 

IN EASTERN CONGO 

Our partnership is with Family Bethlehem in eastern Congo. We are working with children living in two homes run by a Congolese family for the past 20 years. We pay school fees for over 80 primary and secondary students as well as nine students attending university and eight students attending vocational skills programs. Nearly 1 in 3 children in eastern DRC have never been in a classroom (source- ICRC).  Overall enrollment in secondary school is less than 20%. With the help of our manager, we ensure school fees are paid, uniforms and supplies are purchased, and the progress of each student is monitored.

For the safety of our students, we do not post photos of their faces.
