I Am Peace: Building a School in Congo

Year: 2016
Country: Democratic Republic of Congo

Project Launch: 7/1/2016
Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo is situated on the Rwandan border. The city has sought to redevelop its human capacity which was utterly devastated in the aftermath of extremely violent warfare that has rocked the region over the last two decades. This project proposes the construction of a new classroom to facilitate the empowerment of 25 Congolese youth at CAMME’s Youth Inspirations Academy. With individualized attention, leadership development, and exposure to more rigorous education, youth from Eastern DRC will become key players in constructing a culture of peace and achievement in a historically tumultuous environment.
