80 children were discovered living under a bridge in Boma, Democratic Republic of Congo. Together, we hope to raise $9,500.00 to shelter, feed, and educate these 80 orphans, aged 5 to 17. $500.00 to help them has already been raised by locals, people so poor themselves that they live on less than $1/day. Scraping together this $500.00 is an enormous sacrifice of love on their part.
This is about more than sheltering and feeding the body; without educating and teaching them marketable skills, the cycle of poverty will never be broken. By teaching and educating them, we give them food for the spirit and soul and a hope of a useful skill. (Teach a man to fish, he eats for a day; teach him to fish and he eats for a lifetime).
AIDS and malaria often make these children orphans, coupled with poor family conditions due to mother and father’s lack of education, skills, or ability to feed their children or scrape together enough to send them to school.
During the day, these children go out into the city scavenging for food, then return to the bridge in the evening; it is filthy, littered with garbage, rats, and mosquitoes. Pictured here is Gaspard Maphamuka, our partner who runs Educate the Congo Project in Congo. Because we have no administrative costs and are driven on volunteer labor, Gaspard can make sure every donation goes directly to these children.Facebook API came back with a faulty result.
