We are a home for orphaned children in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo in central Africa. Since 2008, we provide housing, clothing, food, health care and education to 32 children living in one of the most dangerous and poorest countries in the world. We are adding 16 more in 2023. Orphaned by war and poverty, our children live in a safe place. We believe that education is the best hope to escape the strong grip of poverty.
In December 2019, we moved the children to their permanent home on 2 acres of land which was purchased with the financial support of International Widows & Orphans Fund, a Registered Canadian charity. We have completed 4 houses, and are planning to build more homes to be able to house up to 60 orphans. We currently also grow our own fresh vegetables, and a pig rearing project is under construction. We use solar energy to pump our water and for all the electrical needs of the orphanage. The next project is to install a large solar system that would enable us to cook with electricity and stop using charcoal.
