With our local partner Acacia (acacia-rdc.org) we opened an environmental elementary school focused on nature preservation and agro-ecology. The children are going through a solid K-6 program and also learn how to protect their environment and face climate change.
The school follows the national educational program but also instill values such as gender equality and team work. It is hosted on a commercial farm in Fungurume, home of a protected forest of 3,000 hectares.
The school has access to the forest for its environmental education program, as well as to hands-on, best-practice agricultural training from the farm’s experts. The program will be augmented with online access to partnering institutions in Europe and the USA.
We help our beneficiaries multiply their production rate by 5. We do that by giving them access to quality inputs, to agronomic expertise, as well as monitoring and agro-ecological management based on the latest research and innovation. We also put in place a fair and stable market for the production of these women farmers.
Rural congolese women often die of infection due to the lack of access to affordable antiseptics and disinfectants. We transform local cassava into surgical alcohol for use in local clinics to fight this curse.
We offer free elementary school to the children of the cobalt mining community of Fungurume, walking them through a solid K-6 program while teaching them how to protect their environment and face climate change. Our goal is to serve 200 kids by 2025, showing them a sustainable future away from artisanal mining.
