It’s back-to-school time for Mitendi Primary School! Lord willing, it will be our final year of squeezing 330+ primary school students into three classrooms at the Mitendi Women’s Center building each day.
This Annual Fund provides scholarships for the in-residence training program and also covers the center’s ongoing maintenance and operational support.
The Mitendi Primary School Annual Fund will provide student scholarships and support for the school. These children are the future of the Congo.
I’m so excited to officially announce that we’re building a new building for the Mitendi Primary School (which currently holds classes inside the Mitendi Women’s Center), and thanks to some very generous donors, we’re kicking off the fund-raising with half the funds needed already in hand! Amazing!
It was a long journey returning to the Congo from the U.S. After 9 months of almost constant travel, it felt so good to arrive back to our own little apartment and unpack our suitcases! We’re happy to be settled, and as Michael said, “to be able to do the work instead of just talking about it for so long.”
