Challenge

Kyaka II refugee settlement is densely populated with about 27,000 people mainly from D.R. Congo. 50% are the children, There are no enough schools to support the number of the growing refugee children, and 50% of the children, about 3400 are out of school. The community needs more schools for the increasing population due to political instability in D. R. Congo. We have the target to put 500 children with 3-8 years back to school. Children will access quality education freely.

Solution

YIDA constructs 3 Learning centers/school to educate children between the age of 3-8. The kids are getting a free education. They also free learning materials and school uniform. Food is provided to the children while at school.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 500 children every year to get primary education. The children will be connected to study high school so that they can be great leaders of Africa who will transform African communities that will stay in peace without wars and Poverty.
