The project that Mleci Organisation initiates consists of building 10 classrooms, one office and latrines . We mean a full primary teaching cycle for 600 children victims of war at Kazimia, South Kivu. In addition, we will provide the class rooms with desks, chairs, tables and blackboards.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The war that raped in the Eastern part of Democratic Republic of Congo have led to extreme impoverishment of many people, destroyed the few infrastructures which were there and made many children vulnerable without any other possibility to go to school at Kazimia.Facing those issues, Mleci has initiated a free of charge school for those children at Kazimia by renting classrooms. The matter is that the rent is very dear and the rooms are cramped (tiny).
How will this project solve this problem?
The project aims to secure and perpetuate the full education of the children by building classrooms for the school. The problem of the costly rent will be solved. In addition, the classrooms built will be big and airy, to allow the children to study in good hygienic conditions. Then 600 children will get through each year of the primary school in good conditions.
Potential Long Term Impact
This School which is called the "Glenn Paige Nonkilling School" is named after an American professor whose writings have aided nonkilling work in Burundi, the DR Congo and Rwanda. The School provides nonkilling and nonviolence teachings in addition to classic teachings beginning from the kindergarten We plan in 10 years to teach 6000 vulnerable children who will become a source for nonkilling leadership in the Great lake Region of Africa.
