REPORT – NOVEMBER 2020 – Cinderellas of Bukavu The coronavirus has not disappeared in the Democratic Republic of Congo, but numbers seem to have reduced and in August lockdown measures were eased. Schools opened on 12th October. Children have been welcomed at Foyer Ek’Abana throughout the whole year despite the pandemic. The centre never closed and remained a safe place for them. In all these months they kept studying and listening to the lessons together over the radio and they never stopped developing their talents. They learn crafts that might be useful for their future. In addition, the Foyer Ek’Abana teaches them how to raise chickens and guinea pigs. Becoming a breeder is another chance that children have for their future. Hence, if they success in completing primary school, they receive a reward: little animals to look after and raise! Farming animals will allow them to earn money and cover the expenses of secondary school. The number of children in need never decreases. Please, donate to support the great job that the centre is doing for them! Thank you for your help!
