Thank you so much for your financial support for the Project - 'Provide Life-Changing Education to Children in DRC'. This enables Kimbilio to provide education at the new Kimbilio School to the street children who are staying in the four Kimbilio houses plus children from families living in the area around the school who cannot afford normal school fees.
Education is life-changing for children forced to live on the streets because it offers them the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills that will hopefully lead to gaining a good quality job when they leave school. Often, the children are forced on to the streets because their familes can no longer afford to support them, so education is the key that can break this cycle of poverty.
Kimbilio has recently started a new initiative. Five former street children have started at the University in Lubumbashi and Kimbilio is supporting them financially. In return, the five students volunteer each week at the Day Centre where they are able to inspire the street children with the way that they have changed around their lives with Kimbilio support.
