The Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) has been in war since 1996, which has had an enormous impact on the living conditions of people. Many children and youth have been forced to become war soldiers while many others have been displaced internally and others have been living in refugee camps for over 19 years. Many high school graduates in DR Congo have lost hope for furthering their education due to the high cost of attending school.
We strongly believe that a good primary, high school and university education not only is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and can create a better future for children and their families but that it can empower young people to gain the skills they need to secure dignified employment and income. We invite you to sponsor a student and invest in the future of DR Congo and Africa, one youth at a time.
Your donation of only $40/month ($480/year) provides one of these precious children with:
- School fees, a uniform & educational supplies, basic medical care as needed and a loving community at the Congo for Christ Centre.
Many of our children live too far away to travel each day for education or are orphaned or in a rescue situation. You can provide a special opportunity for a child (full room and board at Congo for Christ Centre) as well as education for $80 per month.
