Lockdown in our Mabala School Since March of this year, all schools and universities in the DR Congo are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Just like for the rest of the world, this was a first for the Congo and its population, which was completely unprepared for such an emergency. There is a big difference between Congo’s countryside and the developed world.

After sowing several crops, the students harvested in November a large quantity of vegetables that the school…

The lively local music, the songs and a big banner was their way of expressing their appreciation for this new school. He was especially touched by the heartfelt gift of the students, an artificial bonsai tree. At the school grounds, 290 pupils, 11 teachers and school Principal Philemon presented beautiful songs, poems and lines the students had learned in French and some even in English. Our Agro Veterinary School “ITAV ADH Mabala” is officially registered as a governmental school.
