BACKGROUND
The Democratic Republic of Congo has a population of 65,000 million, of which 10 million live in the capital, Kinshasa and 40% of them are young people under 20 years of age. The education of young people is a priority, yet the government fails to address this issue because of its limited resources. Educational options are insufficient due to lack of infrastructure, teaching materials, and lack of training of teachers. The primary project objective is to support the school in Liziba by providing professional development for the retraining of teachers.

IMPLEMENTATION
The project includes:

  • 25 training courses for teachers
  • Improvement of educational and computer equipment
  • Acquisition of a bus to transport students to school
