DRC is one of the most challenging environments on earth, with the country being plagued by decades of corruption, war, and political instability. Educational poverty is prolific; nearly 7 million children between the ages of 5 and 17 are out of school, and 64% of children cannot read a single word in French or answer a single multiplication question. 

Poor school infrastructure and facilities are prevalent in the Diocese of Kindu: out of the 116 diocesan schools in the region, only 4 have adequate facilities which meet the country’s standards. None of the schools have libraries, workshops, or laboratories – or even access to water and electricity.

Staffing is another significant issue for education in DRC. Many teachers are not being paid and when they are, their average payment is below the poverty line. They also often do not completely grasp the curriculum they are meant to be teaching, as effective teacher training is limited. 

Improving infrastructure and providing various materials for learning will help children to have a higher quality education and provide a way out of poverty. This project will serve to equip students with real world skills and enable the training of teachers. 

Your support will improve children’s lives in DRC by helping to provide them with a quality, Christian education.
