Challenge

The indigenous pygmy children in the troubled DR Congo, many of them orphaned due to war, face enormous challenges in accessing basic education needed for self-reliance. Lack of required school fees, isolation and exploitation of pygmy families by local community have made it difficult for the pygmy children to achieve equal treatment and opportunity in pursuit for quality education. The children and their parents will benefit as these needy children will be sponsored to attend school.

Solution

PIPES International's Hope Academy in Goma city of DRC, will cater for 500 vulnerable children who will receive education and regular meal. Our school equips children and youth with knowledge, practical skills and health choices. The unique education program is setting children up for success. Additionally, girls will be supplied with sanitary towels to avoid missing school during the menstrual cycle. The pygmy children and girls will be given equal treatment and opportunity to access education.

Long-Term Impact

Investing in the education of pygmy children in DR Congo will ensure necessary knowledge, skills and tools are acquired to help the marginalized community thrive economically. This program will give 500 children and youth opportunity to access quality education and skills needed for community development. The children who benefit in this program will stabilize their own families and their community.
