What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Eastern Congo has suffered significantly from conflict over the past 15 years and the affects on children and familes is extrememly serious. Many families in Goma, one of the largest cities in eastern Congo, do not have enough money to feed their families, let alone pay for school fees.

This project will: -Give scholarships to secondary school for children who graduate from the CV primary school. -Pay for teacher's salaries at the CV primary school. -Provide micro-grants for families who take in orphans
