Thank you for your financial support for this Project which enabled Kimbilio to build a school for children who had been living on the streets and for children of local families who could not afford the school fees for state schools. There are now 245 children at the Kimbilio school. Your support covers the salaries for the teachers, the purchase of teaching materials and the maintenance of the school building and grounds.
The school program has now expanded from teaching the Primary curriculum to offer the first three years of the secondary curriculum. In addition to the usual Congolese curriculum taught in French, it offers art, sport, IT in a dedicated IT suite, and English from Nursery upwards, none of which is taught in any but the most expensive private schools.
The Kimbilio Founding Director has just returned from Lubumbashi where he presented prizes to the children at the end of the school year.
