Our latest trip, september 2018

During our latest trip to Congo-Kinshasa we have visited our ongoing projects as well as supervised the construction of our internship school. We have visited our girls who participate in our sewing education. They made school uniforms for the children at our school and have started a new project to produce products from recycled materials. We have also visited our school and met all schoolchildren, their parents and the school staff.

We have also started a collaboration with a hospital run by the Catholic Church. This hospital has many different types of activities, including maternity care, child welfare and care of malnourished children. They also perform eye examinations and hand out glasses for free. During our stay, the Swedish Emabassy in Kinshasa visited the hospital.

During our recent trip, the building processes for our internship school have started. We have purchased materials and prepared the land for construction and began to manufacture bricks for construction.

Thank you for your support <3

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

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.
