Since the year 2000 our annual reports provide an overview over the progress of our projects. Apart from summaries concerning the current project this section also covers completed projects. Thereby we trace the history of “Active Direct Help”. Additionally we regularly publish the recent developments to our current project in detail.

Annual Reports
The Last Four Classrooms Our school in Mabala will soon be independent from us! We have already built eight classrooms, but the school needs a total of six classrooms for the agricultural section and six classrooms for the veterinary section. So, we needed four more! With gratitude and vision, the parents of the students took initiative once again and organized the production of thousands of new bricks. The funding of the roof, windows, doors, and cement for the walls, floors and patio came from ADH and ERA CONGO, a company operating in forest conservation in the area. It’s the same company which supported the planting of our school’s palm trees last year. For this school year, we have enrolled 287 students, 194 boys and 93 girls in grades 7 to 12. At the end of this school year, the first 26 students will be able to take their final exams!…

Additional School Building in Mabala After building a well for drinking water for our school by the middle of this year, the parents of our students initiated and supported the making of 10,000 bricks for another school building. In 2018, our school started out with three classrooms each for grade 7 and 8. Each year, we added new grades, and this school year we needed 2 more classrooms for the agricultural and veterinarian section of grade 11. Besides the bricks, we needed wood and corrugated metal sheets for the roof, windows, doors and cement for the protection of the walls against rain as well as for the floors and outside patios. ADH contributed the needed finances to purchase these items and paid the workers. The work went well and now everybody is very thankful for the two new classrooms as well as a new room for the teachers. Thank God,…

Since Mabala is located in an area where the Corona virus was not so widespread, the Congolese government gave permission for all schools in this region to reopen after a short time of closure in January. We are very grateful for this because in Congo’s countryside there is no online communication for schools like in industrialized countries or in some private schools in Kinshasa. Our school director Philemon continued to oversee the work on the acacia and palm nut tree nurseries. The students have now been able to plant the first batches of trees on our field around the school. Two hectares of cassava, the main staple food in the Congo, have also been planted. After many similar previous ventures in Mushapo, all of which we unfortunately had to stop due to theft, this is a long-awaited dream that is gradually coming true for us. It will still take years…
