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.

To the first school year in Mabala

Our partner organization BBK, under the supervision of Mme. Annie, who is an experienced directress of another secondary school, selected 260 pupils, including 15 Pygmy children. Since BBK in Kinshasa will pay the teachers, all the children in our school do not have to pay the usual mandatory school fees. Ing. Philemon, an experienced agronomist, was chosen as school director; also, one secretary and nine teachers were carefully chosen.

Opening of Agro-Veterinary School in Mabala

Our two new schoolbuildings, with three big classrooms each, and the office building for the director and teachers are finished enough, that the school could still start in this year. This is an amazing accomplishment of the last 5 months, especially under the difficult circumstances in the remote interior of the country, and we are very thankful for everybody’s wholehearted participation! The school is called ITAV-ADH Mabala; ITAV stands for Institute Technique Agro-Veterinaire. (Picture: Some of the 260 pupils in our school, incl.15 Pygmy children)

It was necessary to relocate the school lessons in Tshikapa

The schooling of our Mushapo children continues well in Tshikapa. We sent some funding to school-director Pierre, who needed extra help, as they had to move premises to a different location within the city.

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.

More students than ever, 567 in total!

This school year the number of students in our Primary School increased to 275 boys and 202 girls, together 477. Our Secondary School population also grew, now 53 boys and 37 girls, together 90. 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.
