Congo – Mitendi Primary School Annual Fund
Democratic Republic of the Congo
GoalSeeking to raise $108,720 for three years. $36,240 annually to provide scholarships for primary school children and ongoing maintenance and teachers’ support during the school year.
SummaryThe Mitendi Primary School Annual Fund will provide student scholarships and support for the school. These children are the future of the Congo.
DescriptionFor the past 10 years, the Mitendi area has experienced an explosion in population growth. The majority of the people in the immediate area have fled to Kinshasa hoping to find help and relief from poverty and are now living in refugee-like status. A survey identified that over 1,000 primary school age children were not attending school.
The school has been operating since 2011 and depends on your gifts for a sustainable annual operating budget.
Suggested Gifts$140 gives one child a scholarship
$700 gives five children an education for a year
$1,000 provides teachers’ support and school maintenance throughout the school year
Prayer RequestsPrayerfully consider your part in this project and pray with Jill and the Congolese Baptist Women’s Association that, by offering an education to children in the Mitendi area, the Congo will see hope for the future.
