Our next trip to Kinshasa, september 2018

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

Our latest trip, April 2018

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

Our latest trip, Februari 2018

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.
