As in the developed world, the school year in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) lasts about nine months. Unlike in the developed world, most children in the DRC don’t get the chance to attend school – they don’t have the money and resources for basics we take for granted: school fees, school uniforms and shoes, something to write with and something to write on. On top of that, years of conflict left many kids with the scars of being child soldiers, refugees, and wanderers among the internally displaced.
For less than $99, a child in the DRC can go to school for a year. That’s less than $7 a month to escape the uncertainty and turmoil. That’s less than 25 cents a day to gift a child with a year of learning, a better future for the Congo, and a better future for Africa and the world.
The REEL Project connects communities and shares their stories, changing people’s lives through art, film, technology – and sometimes through good-old-fashioned digging latrines and building shelters. We would love your help in providing learning and life to the kids of the DRC.
Your gift is tax deductible and goes to the children, not to our overhead.
