Challenge

The Democratic Republic of Congo is torn by conflicts and violence cycles since 1990s. Millions of people are internally displaced and thousands flee the country; they are refugees. Children are the most affected by conflicts and violence in their home country, the DR. Congo. Our organization members, volunteers and friends have decided to provide education to refugee children for a better future and social integration. This year 2014-2015, we expect 400 refugee children to attend our school.

Solution

The project provides free and quality education to refugee children who cannot afford the cost of private schooling or integrate formal national Burundian education. Besides the formal education, we provide psychological framework to most traumatized children and orphans or those separated with families. Due to high number of Congo refugee, our school is recognized by the Congolese national education authority, beneficiaries are prepared to integrate D.R. Congo education system when back home.

Long-Term Impact

The project helps 312 refugee children whom elementary and high school education is provided by La Vision school. Our conviction the education is the unique tool that will empower these children or youth overcome their future challenges despite their painful past. We mainly fight stigma among these children based on their social status through education. Our long term is to provide to refugee children complete education, make them feel happy and supported.
