Recently, we came home from our latest trip to Kongo-Kinshasa. It was a successful trip and we have accomplished a lot in a short period of time. During our latest trip we have been monitoring our ongoing projects and continued to developing our upcoming projects. We have equipped our photography and film department at our vocational school. We have distributed soccer equipment to our girls that plays football. We received the equipment from Floby IF and Renew Group Sweden AB. We also made a trip to the zoo together with our preschoolers. It was a really appreciated trip
In addition to this we have developed our sewing operations that is a part of our vocational school. We have started a training school for a number of women who will be fully trained in about three months. We have also started a project with micro loans where we will lend a sum to a number of participants (mostly women) where the goal is that they will using the loan to be able to make investments in already existing operations to develop to give them a chance a chance to become independent and self-sufficient.
We also had a meeting meeting together with our members as well as our Board of directors hope for Kinshasa in Kinshasa to discuss the Future as well as our new projects.
Thank you to all who support our work and has done this trip possible. Without you we are nothing. Love for you <3
We plan to do our next trip in August 2017 to start evaluating our projects as well as developing them further.

From the 12th to the 14th of November, 2016, we visited Malmfälten University in Kiruna to tell our story and to discuss human rights and the situation in Congo-Kinshasa. We raised various issues such as what can we do to make human rights not to stay in the theory but also work in practice and what we can do to all member countries should be satisfied and sign all the conventions. We also talked about the crisis in the Congo and the fact that the world remains silent despite the millions of dead people since 1998! We also showed our photo exhibition and participated in a newspaper interview with Norrländska Socialdemokraten. All this in the hope of bringing peace to the Congo and in the world.
Many thanks to all the amazing people in Stockholm Strand Rotaryklubb came to listen to us and our story the 28th of october 2016. It means a lot! Thank you for being so enthusiastic and that you appreciated our work! We are always happy to see many people listen to us and tell us that what they have heard was amazing and impressive! We thank you for all the advice and promises to improve before next time. We look forward to seeing you on more occasions to talk about us and what we have achieved and want to achieve.

Thanks to all employees at Swedbank Customer Service Centre who visited our event Pearl-AW 15 September 2016 at Stora Essingen in Stockholm. Together we made over 50 bracelets which we later will sell at various events in the future to fund our future projects. The event was very successful and it was very nice to sit down for a few hours together and discuss important issues and make some bracelets. What would we be without you <3

Now we are back home again after a three-week trip to Congo-Kinshasa. The trip went well and we have accomplished a lot. We started our stay with reviewing all of our operations to ensure that everything works as it should. We met the children at our nursery school and all of our sports teams in football, ju-jutsi and boxing. We also met with the staff of our hospital and the women who gave birth at our hospital. We also visited our water wells that we built in December 2014 and talked with the woman who is responsible for them. Then we continued to hand out everything we brought with us.
We took with us Solvatten (safe water cleaning system) which we will use to clean the water from the water wells we have built. They will be of great use, particularly in our hospital that lack clean water. Even if the water looks clean to the naked eye as it contains various parasites which can lead to various diseases. Therefore safe water cleaning system will be highly appreciated in Malueka where we work.
We also brought glasses that we received from Specsavers and equipment for eye examination that we received from the Synoptics. Malueka is a very poor suburb of Kinshasa. There, people can not afford to do vision screenings or to buy glasses. Therefore, we now offer them the opportunity to do this totally free.
We also handed out sports equipment to our football clubs for boys and girls that we have received from Vallentuna BK, Floby IF, Falköping United and Tesco UK. We also distributed the equipment for our Ju-Jutsiteam we received from Team Leites Stockholm. We also handed out equipment to our preschool that we visited to hand out diplomas because the children have been good, and completed its first year of preschool.
We want to thank everyone who has given us all the material we brought with us and also all those who support us financially in various ways, without you all this would not be possible.
Soon, we will travel to the DRC again to work wonders and the preparations are going on every day. We will take with us Solvatten which we will use to clean the water from the water wells we have built. Even if the water looks clean to the naked eye it contains various parasites which can lead to various diseases. Therefore, our Solvatten will be much appreciated in Malueka.
We will also bring us glasses we received from Specsavers and equipment for eye examination we received from the Synoptics. Malueka is a very poor suburb of Kinshasa. There, people can not afford to do vision screenings or to buy glasses. Therefore, we will now make it possible for them to do this free of charge.
We also bring sports equipment to our football clubs for boys and girls. We will also bring equipment to our preschool that we will visit to hand out diplomas because the children have been good, and completed its first year of preschool.

Yesterday we visited the Lions Club Globen/Årsta to lecture them about our activities. At the meeting participated representatives from all areas of Stockholm. Hope’s future will be decided after this meeting, and we look forward to the decision when it is time to evolve and find a partner. Many thanks to all Lions who participated and asked questions to us. Today on the stage, we felt that we have much to give to the world and Africa, and felt stronger than ever. Together, we are better and more numerous. “No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone”
