Most children in the Congo have one special dream: to go to school.
There are many reasons why poor children in the Congo can’t go to school. Children who live in rural communities are often unable to learn to read and to write because they live too far away from the nearest school. Their parents are too poor to send them, so the lack of education in these families continues. In some cases, the parent may sell their last goat just to put one boy in school and let the sisters stay home. Without the opportunity of further education, their futures are bleak.
With a generous gift of $2000, you can build one classroom in the rural Congo. This construction will buy building materials and labor, classroom supplies, chairs and desks. Just think: could an entire school from K-12, which doubles as a community center, be built and equipped for just $24,000?
Yes! The local people help donate labor and land. Quite a small sum for the return of hope, health, education and economic freedom for so many people.
Here you can see pictures of students showing the donations they worked on for the children in the Congo. This students have never been to Africa but they already understand the importance of raising money for less fortunate in the Congo. This will give many a chance for much better health care and education.
These students decided to take the project to the next level bay starting a student-to -student solidarity with their new friends in Africa. We would like to thank the many schools who have helped this project, including:
Western Reserve Academy
Green Local Schools
St. Vincent-St. Mary
St. Francis Xavier
Grand River Academy
Springfield Jr. High
Holy Family Parish School
