The Ek’Abana Center provides long-lasting support and protection to children in need that live in the area of Bukavu.
Many children that are welcomed at the center often decide to remain as volunteers when they grow up and after the end of their school years.
One of these is Samuel.
Samuel has a lot of brothers and sisters and his parents have been working all their lives to guarantee decent living conditions for their children; nevertheless, Samuel’s parents have often struggled to find stable employments and this has led to economic vulnerability. Therefore, the Ek’Abana Center has played a key role in Samuel’s life as it has been the place where he has had the opportunity to study and receive support during the times in which his family was struggling.
During his school years, Samuel was a very hard-working student and he always received good grades. Recently, he finally obtained his diploma and he received a specialized training to eventually work as plumber and electrician.
While looking for a stable job, Samuel is currently providing support to the Ek’Abana Center as a volunteer. He is really enjoying the activities he carries out as volunteer and he is happy that he can continue to be part of the center even now that he has finished school.
Samuel’s story shows how important the work of the Ek’Abana Center is for children living in the area of Bukavu.
