EDUCATION: Free education in the DRC is scarce, especially for girls. We now have 314 girls enrolled in our free, accredited primary and secondary school. In addition to standard classes students enjoy learning English, participating in enrichment activities such as music and arts programs, and keeping active in our sports classes--including our new boxing program. At our community center, over 5,000 out of school youth and adults receive training in literacy, farming skills, entrepreneurship and community-building sports initiatives.
WATER: The village of Kalebuka, like most in the DRC, had no access to water. Today, we have built 13 new wells and refurbished 4 existing ones. Together, this 17-well system is providing access to clean water for over 30,000 people a year.
HEALTH: Malnutrition and disease are daily and deadly threats to education. Our school health center and daily student meal program ensure that each student is ready to learn. Our partnerships with local doctors educate the community on malnutrition, malaria and HIV/AIDS.
We do all of this with the support of generous donors like you and would love your support. Please donate to help empower the girls and community of Kalebuka.
