Thank you! All of our children are currently sponsored!!
"The war in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has caused the collapse of the economy which has affected not only the government but also the people themselves. A significant portion of the Congolese population has been displaced as a result of the war and the education sector has been afflicted by the destruction of its infrastructure.
All of this has led to higher rates of poverty in the country, making it impossible for parents to send their children to school. This project seeks to assist elementary school students in the DRC by providing children with an education.
The project seeks to find sponsors for children who otherwise would not have a chance to attend school. Children are selected in partnership with local schools and in some cases with the help of local NGOs."
Education is a top priority for the youth of this country, as it is the only hope they have of breaking free from poverty. We know that children who are educated, are not only able to make a living for themselves, but their families as well. They will go on to educate their children and give back to their communities, ending the cycle of poverty. Education is the key to the future.
A small fee of $165 covers the tuition and fees for one year of schooling. With this the child will also receive a "school kit" (uniform, shoes, and school supplies) upon sponsorship.
With your sponsorship, you will receive a sponsorship card and 2 updates throughout the year. One at half term, and one at the end of the school year.
