Thank you for your donations towards our vision of creating a multi-purpose kids centre in Lubumbushi. We have now identified the land on which to build the new centre and it is conveniently situated opposite the current day centre that we need to leave.

The new day centre will include a health clinic for the street children, showers where they can wash, toilets, a large room for activities and a kitchen. There will also be a hair salon where the girls trained in the Young Mums Project can set up their business, and a shop where women trained in the Sewing Workshop can sell their products. This will create income for the girls/young mums to feed their families and prevent children coming back on to the streets.

We also plan to include a studio that can be rented out for dance workshops/Church meetings/wedding receptions which will create income.

The cost to purchase the land is $50,000 and the owner has agreed to accept $20,000 as a guaruntee and three payments of $10,000 before the end of the year. Our priority now is to raise the $20,000 needed to secure the plot of land, so please encourage your family and friends to help us with a donation.

The vision to provide a multipurpose centre for street kids in Lubumbashi will be our main focus this year.

We anticipate requiring approximately $60,000 to buy a plot and build the centre or alternatively to acquire a building that can be refurbished to provide street children with a safe place to eat, access clean water, play and be listened to. In addition, we will provide family and community support for families on the edge and life skills training for former street children as well as parents with no income.

We look forward to keeping you updated over the coming months on progress towards achieving our vision.

For many years, the Kimbilio Day Centre for street children in Lubumbashi has used the Anglican Cathedral building.in the city centre. The Diocese wish to refurbish the cathedral and this gives us the opportunity to create a multipurpose kids centre.

The donations that we receive will go towards the purchase of a site where we can develop a centre which will provide street children with a safe place to eat, access clean water, play and be listened to.In addition, we will family& community support for families on the edge and life skills training for former street children as well as parents of children without an income. Providing families with an income could be the key to preventing their children ending up on the streets.

It is exciting to embark on this new project, which will enhance the work of Kimbilio in the DRC.
