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 schooling of the children continued well in 2014 and the school keeps growing. The Primary School now has 414 students who are going to our school free of charge. The people of Mushapo and the surrounding villages asked if we could also start a Secondary School which is running since this school year and has 85 students. Since the villagers know that our means are limited, they offered to pay for the teachers, so they don’t have to send their children to Tshikapa, 65 km away, with no means of transport. It is a Technical Vocational School with emphasis on agricultural training. Our piece of land and Ing.

These older students also receive Computer classes for which we gave the school another laptop. We also…


The big increase in the number of students who want to go to our school was quite unexpected.

Together we were able to participate in our 4th interview with “München TV”. Also we have finished our latest video about our project in Mushapo. We also had the opportunity to…


The most rewarding moment of my recent visit to Mushapo was when I stood in front of the school one morning and all the children who attend our school free of charge were singing for us with their whole hearts some beautiful songs which Blandine taught them, as a sign of their appreciation. This one moment was worth all the troubles we had the last two years working on this project. And look at those parents (right), how proud they are standing behind their kids holding up their first report cards! After finishing the construction of the first school building made with bricks we are producing more bricks for the second building. Besides the construction work, one other important target is to get the school to stand on its own feet in the long run. Jos and I had several meetings with Jean, our manager of the farm, and we…
