Classes for 62 students
Catholic Relief Services-USCCB
Tens of thousands of poor families in the Democratic Republic of the Congo lack the money to send their children to school or to pay for basic school supplies. Girls encounter the greatest hurdles to basic education because they are not encouraged to attend.
Your gift will provide new learning opportunities to impoverished children. This educational project helps train teachers in new teaching methods so they can educate children, especially girls, in poor areas of the Congo. Among other goals, this project distributes textbooks; chalk and blackboard paint, and gives schools the tools and materials they need to refurbish old school buildings. The education plan encourages girls to attend class regularly and to perform well. Your generous gift of $75 will fund two classes of 31 students for one year.
