Educate 130 Children of Rape Victims in DR Congo

Report from the Rwenena School Principal

The quality may not be pristine, and the subtitling is definitely imperfect, but this video has come a long way before finally landing here on this page. Produced by AMCAV, this first installment features the principal of the Rwenena (Reh-NENN-uh) Primary School speaking about this Global Giving project and its impact on the school students and staff. Rwenena is so remote it doesn't even appear on Google Maps; you need to find it in a broader Google search. Thanks to Global Giving for bringing attention to this otherwise-forgotten corner of the world where education is brought to these children born of rape for the first time. And huge thanks to donors past, present, and future for keeping this project alive!

Stay tuned for future installments showing kids in the classroom!
