ABOUT THE PROJECT

page8

Our missionary priests are running hundreds of parish schools in the DRC, working to lift children and their families out of poverty through education.

UNDERSTANDING
THE NEED

The DRC is one of the poorest countries in the world, with well over 50% of the country living in poverty on less than $1 a day. Because of the extreme poverty of the country and the fact that a significant part of the country’s people are Catholic, the Catholic schools and churches of the DRC are a crucial network that helps children discover new opportunity through education.

Without this network of parish schools, children in remote or rural areas would have no schooling options at all.

The Children of the DRC

Our network of parish schools in the DRC offers children stability, opportunity, and education despite their impoverished circumstances.

UNDERSTANDING OUR GOALS

  1. We want to get wells installed near schools and communities that need them so children can focus on education.

  2. We want to purchase supplies and textbooks to improve the quality of education in our schools.

  3. We want to repair and build up existing and new school facilities in order to offer more students a safe learning environment.
