ADH has two new promising projects in the pipeline

Our plan for 2023 is to build two Vocational Training Centers in two different locations, fulfilling a long-time dream! We are planning to train young adults from each of these areas in a one-year course to learn a trade along the lines of agriculture, including animal husbandry, fish farming, beekeeping etc. At the end of their training, each graduate will receive a package with seeds, possibly a baby animal, and – thus equipped – will return to their village to open up their own workplace with what they have learned in our Centers. One project will be overseen by Jean who has been our local project manager since 2011. The Center will be located east of Kinshasa, on the Plateau de Bateke. The other project will be headed by Joseph, whom we have known since the beginning of our activities in the Congo in 2003. This Center will be located in Nsioni, almost 500 km west of Kinshasa, towards the Atlantic Ocean. Both men have done well with our recent microfinance projects, which gives us confidence that these two new projects should work out satisfactorily as well.

Waiting for the state to take over the financing of school operations

Thanks to your faithful support, all the students in our Agro-Veterinary School in Mabala keep receiving their education and training. So far, the Congolese Ministry of Education does not pay any teachers in new secondary schools like ours. However, since we want to give our students the opportunity to attend our school free of charge, we continue to pay the teachers’ salaries ourselves. Once the state takes over with that, we can start another project. We appreciate your help so we can keep the school running and give the students a better chance for their future.

Note on ADH's microfinance projects

Joseph made good progress in his work in Nsioni which is very encouraging to see how he invests the funds we gave him for this farming project. He made a gate for the farm, also built a boat for the fishponds and made a new channel to feed the ponds with water. ADH decided to start a new micro finance project with our local manager Jean. He needs support for vegetable seeds to make progress on his agricultural project on the Plateau de Bateke, East of Kinshasa.

"Change the world with love" is finally in print

A big milestone has been the finalization and printing of our book. After years of writing “Change the World with Love” in three languages (German, English and Czech), months of proofreading and working together with our graphic designer, the books are finally printed and ready for distribution! We hope that this book, in addition to all the work we can do on the ground, will help the people of Congo make great progress at the national and international levels.

On ADH’s yearly meeting – again online – we confirmed Lenka’s niece Tereza as a new association member. She has been helping us already since a while with the Instagram and other work she can do online and we are very happy to have another young person join our team.

ADH supports the micro-project of a long-time active friend in the rural area

We started a micro finance project with Joseph Nlandu, one of our first friends in Congo, to support his rice, corn and fishing project in Nsioni. Joseph is a very active and creative man, who is committed to rural development in his native region of Congo Centrale. With our support, he planted a new rice field and a new corn field, built a new fish pond and purchased materials with which he constructed two machines that will facilitate the peeling of corn and rice.

Current status of Madlen's school building project next to the Kimbondo orphanage

Madlen is making great progress in her school building project adjacent to the Kimbondo Children’s Home on the outskirts of Kinshasa. With the help of her friends, she has now completed the big school building and dorms for the young orphans in her care. She asked us to contact our friends in Kinshasa, to help her with the school desks and benches she still needs.
