Kinshasa, DR Congo
Espoir Congo cares for orphaned and underprivileged children in a village outside Kinshasa, in collaboration with a Congolese association (SABEC) which assumes legal responsibility for the children. Orphan-related programs include:
In 2010, Espoir Congo built a primary school in Kikimi, later adding a secondary school so as to offer free education in French for orphaned and underprivileged children, as well as affordable non-profit primary and secondary education to other village children.
A medical center provides free medical assistance and medication to orphaned and underprivileged children and offers the same non-profit services to the village population, including a dispensary, lab tests, prenatal care and childbirth, and surgery.
