Our last trip to Congo-Kinshasa was very successful. We visited our existing projects, such as our preschool, school and vocational school and our healthcare center. We also met our girls who participate in our sewing training and our girls who play soccer.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day and Hope for Kinshasa’s founder (Tresor’s) birthday together with our schoolchildren and took them on an excursion to the city.
Our girls who participate in our syllabus received some new sewing machines. Our girls who play soccer got some equipment that we brought with us from Sweden, which we have received from Skogås football club.
Last but not least we have bought land for the school that we are going to build. Since the need for education is high in Congo-Kinshasa (50% of all children do not go to school and 30% are illiterate) we have purchased a large area with a 5.5 hectare area to be able to build an internship with space for approx. 300 students for the grades 1-9.
Thank you to all who support our work <3
