Extending Education Beyond the Malaika School

Lack of education remains the reality for many children in the DRC, but through the use of the community center and after-school programs at Malaika, many out-of-school youths have been able to continue their schooling. We would especially like to thank Professor Kangela for hosting various lessons in Swahili, French, literacy, and mathematics. Many of these children and adolescents have gained confidence since starting their lessons. The ability to read and write are crucial and hopefully these lessons will help pave the way for a greater number of opportunities. Learning has inspired them to come back to the center and continue their education, bringing some friends along too!
