Soon, we will return to Kongo-Kinshasa to work on our projects. During our coming trip we will visit our school to meet the teachers as well as our students and be involved during the school start.
We will also meet our girls at our sewing school. We plan to bring glasses that we received from Synsam Sweden. We will leave the glasses at our health center so that we can continue to offer free eye examinations and glasses.
Last but not least, we will visit our land where we will continue with the construction of our internship school. At the beginning of 2018, we bought a 10,000 hectare land, which we have prepared in the spring and summer to make it ready for the construction work.
Thank you to all who support our work and help us to help others <3
In case you have missed Tresors visit in the Swedish television program Nyhetsmorgon you can watch the clip here.
During April 2018, Tresor again made a trip to Congo-Kinshasa. Even this trip was very successful. He visited our preschool, school, our Girls who are sewing and the girls working in our hairdressing salon. The children and young adults at our preschool and school are well and they are excited about the opportunity to participate in school education in Malueka where they live.
Our girls who are sewing have sewn bibs that Tresor brought back to Sweden. This project is a collaboration with Textilhögskolan in Borås and MäryDesign. They also got a new ‘workplace’ in the form of a floor and a roof since they have previousl worked outside the teacher’s house without any protection from the weather and wind than an old tree.
Last but not least, we have completed the final agreements regarding the land that we have purchased to build a school. We have also begun to build a fence around the land. After the summer we will start the construction process for the school with space for approximately 300 students from grades 1-9.
Thank you to all who support our work <3
During our last trip to Kinshasa, the renovation of our school continued. It is not yet complete but has now such a good standard that our approximately 400 students have begun to attend to school classes at the school.
Tresor also met our girls who plays soccer when they participated in a training match. He also met our girls who go to our sewing school to talk to them and plan for future projects. They continue to sew bags that we sell in Sweden for the benefit of our sewing project in Kinshasa.
Tresor also visited our health center where the residents of Malueka once again had the opportunity to get free eye examinations and glasses thanks to a collaboration with Synsam and Lions club Stockholm.
Last but not least Tresor took 250 children from school and went on a school trip to Tractafric. There the children got a chance to look at different tractors and machines, which was much appreciated.
During August 2017 we traveled to Congo-Kinshasa to monitor our ongoing projects and start new projects. We met our girls who are sewing at our school that we started in connection with our micro-loan project. This project has been very successful and they are now very good at sewing. As a final test, they sew clothes in African fabrics for us, as well as bags in African Fabrics, which we bought with us to Sweden and will be sold here. The money from the sales will return to our girls so that they can buy more material for their business. In this way, they can continue their business and become independent and self-sufficient.
We have also met the women in the second part of our micro-loan project. These women are involved in agriculture and sell what they cultivate in small stores. This project was also very successful so it will go for a long time to come and new women will be able to get help through this project and thus become self-sufficient and self-sufficient.
We also met our girls who play football and got the chance to share more material with them that we brought with us from Sweden. We have also moved our care center / youth reception to better premises and have taken over and renovated a school where we will start a primary school soon.
Before we started our trip to Congo-Kinshasa we loaded a truck full of material that we have collected for over two years. The truck was then transported by boat from Belgium to Congo. The truck contained materials for our care center / youth reception, preschool / school and our vocational training / microloan project.
With the help of the material in the truck we have now equipped our care center and school and, with the help of the material for our vocational training school, we have now started different types of company projects together with the students. The idea of the project is that students will learn everything about entrepreneurship while becoming self-sufficient.
Thank you to all who have contributed with material and support us financially with our projects. On our own we are nothing, together we are strong <3
Mid-August we will travel to Congo-Kinshasa to monitor our ongoing projects and start new projects. During spring and summer we have been busy planning and working on our biggest project since we started Hope for kinshasa on May 26, 2011.
We have stacked a truck full of material we have collected for over two years. The truck is now on its way by boat from Belgium to Congo. We bring materials to our health center/youth reception, preschool/school and our vocational programs.
With the help of the material we will equip our operations and with the material for our vocational training school we will start different types of activities. For example, we want to start a second hand shop with all the clothes and shoes we have collected from private individuals and companies. The idea is that the students should learn everything about business activities while they become self-sufficient.
Thank you to all who have contributed with material and financial support to this project. On our own we are nothing, together we are strong <3
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
No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
När du får frågan om du fortfarande tänker korruption och inser att man har fortfarande mycket att jobba på för att tvätta bort stereotyper och fördomar som är kvar hos många och samtidigt som du börjar hålla med ordspråket som kommer från bibeln att ” Ingen är profet i sitt eget land/i sin egen hemstad…”
Man lär sig av misstagen eftersom man blir vis…ny dag, nya utmaningar och nya möjligheter! G’morgon Sverige . Han kanske inte den mest omtyckta person eller vad man än nu säger om honom eller hans politik men jag kommer ihåg vad Han sa till mig, vår Statsminister Stefan Löfven att man ska våga säga ifrån och kämpa för rättvisa , våga göra skillnad.Ibland vill människor inte höra vissa saker, helst vill de höra vad som får dem att må bättre…
