Education

With the school project in Mushapo ADH wants to ensure a good education for the students in order to give them and the village a better future. ADH offers the schooling for free, so that also children from poorer families can attend the school. With a proper teaching staff ADH tries to establish a good teacher ratio, so that the children can be treated according to their needs. The curriculum of the officially recognized school is based on national guidelines, but already in the first grade, the language is French.

News About our Students in Mushapo and Tshikapa

We sent some support to our school director Pierre and the teachers in Tshikapa as it was very hard for them to start all over after local militia had forced them to leave Mushapo last year. The afternoon school is functioning well, thus the children can continue their education. We also found out that the Tshokwe tribe who remained in Mushapo has reopened our school there recently. Now we have about 350 pupils in the school in Tshikapa and 150 pupils in our school buildings in Mushapo. We are happy for all those precious children that they can continue their education although they suffer from this forceful interruption in their lives.

Schooling of our Mushapo pupils continues in Tshikapa

The good news is that the majority of the families of our children, who had to flee, have regrouped in Tshikapa. We have 369 displaced pupils there: 32 enrolled in other schools in Tshikapa, while 337 are under the supervision of Director Pierre. Upon the request of the parents, Pierre was able to find a school in Tshikapa where he is teaching our children in the afternoon with our eight former teachers and three new teachers who have replaced the two original Tshokwe teachers who remained in Mushapo. We are very grateful for this initiative of the parents and school director Pierre, which helps the children to continue their education despite the terrible local situation, and we are happy, that the idea of our project carries on.

Schooling in Mushapo is currently impossible

The terrifying approach in the armed conflict resembles the one in the East of Congo, with the aim of dispersing the population in order to exploit the resources more easily. Kasai is known for its many diamonds. In view of this situation, we can only hope and pray that more international attention will move the government towards finding a peaceful solution. Until then, not only are our and the other schools and health centers in the region brought to a halt, but innocent people will continue to die and are driven away. Instead of letting ourselves be discouraged from helping other needy people, we are thankful for what has been achieved so far: • Since the beginning of our project in 2011, nearly 2000 pupils have attended our school. They will not forget how someone from abroad built them a school, set it up and made it possible for them to receive free schooling, while now their own country men drove them out. • The children will be able to continue to receive further schooling in their new places of refuge. • Our teachers keep receiving salaries from the government in spite of the fighting. • Through this project, our team has gained important experience on how to build development work in the rural areas of Congo, where the need is the biggest. These experiences can help us and others with similar projects.

Less children per classroom at school in Mushapo are necessary

A representative of the Ministry of Education from Kamonia visited our school and said we should add one more class to the 5th and 6th grade as the amount of children per class is too high (over 50). Since there are only 10 class rooms, we will have to see how to rearrange things to create two new classes. The Ministry is ready to support two more teachers which will be a big help for the school.

That brings our total amount of students up to 567! It is very encouraging to see that the parents appreciate the schooling of their children so much, which will give them a better chance in their future.

Preparations for a new school year

All our 32 students from the 6th grade passed the final exams at the end of the last school year. This is a big success for the school and proves that our teachers and director are doing a good job. The official name of our school is „E.P. A.D.H. MUSHAPO”. It stands for „Ecole Primaire (Primary School) ADH Mushapo”. Our school director Pierre went to a meeting of the sub-division from the Ministry of Education in Kamonia for all school directors of this area. Two days before school starts we have a preparatory meeting with all the pupils at our school to prepare them for a good school year ahead.

Soccer jerseys for FC Mushapo and for schools in nearby villages

One of our sponsors in Germany sent us a lot of jerseys, footballs and pumps, so we could give our school a set for two teams and some more for the schools in the neighboring villages. It is difficult to explain the many steps it took to get these materials all the way to Mushapo, but it was also a special wish of the neighboring schools which will create more joy and unity between all of the schools.
