Thanks to your donations, math kits have been purchased for all 130 children at our three schools in South Kivu, eastern DR Congo. With funds from another source, we also purchased notebooks for each of the students to write in. And our earlier microproject has the students equipped with pens and pencils to write with. These new tools reflect a great expansion of the students' earlier limited learning systems involving only bottle caps for counting and chalk for solving equations.

These students are now facing worlds of new discoveries in the classroom thanks to this simple math kit. Photos here show the contents of the kit, the distributed kits and notebooks, and a thank you sign to you, the donors of GlobalGiving.

We expect two new microprojects to be posted soon to raise money for new backpacks to contain the children's new belongings at 2 of the 3 schools as well as an urgent need for new shoes for children at the Luberizi school, which is currently without a roof in 4 classrooms following a storm. Fortunately money has been raised for repairs and the children continue to attend classes rain (sharing covered classrooms) or shine. Keep checking GlobalGiving.org for the posting of these microprojects; try searching "backpacks 90 kids DR Congo" and "shoes 45 kids DR Congo."

Continued gratitude goes out to you from me, my Congolese project co-leader Bernadette, the staff at the schools, the parents, and the children. Feel free to reach out to me with questions: annetteamcav@gmail.com.
