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.
