School Construction

Until the start of our school project in early 2011, the village of Mushapo did not have their own school. To spare the children their daily long walk to neighboring villages and in order that more children can get a good education, ADH made the realization of a school project in Mushapo its goal. The school project is meant to last: Several school buildings with bright spacious classrooms of solid, durable materials should guarantee a permanent school operation no matter what the weather conditions. In addition, important new jobs will be created in the rural area by building schools and the operation thereof.

New building with two more classrooms and staff room

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.

Our school in Mabala gets a well for drinking water supply

A great victory is the building of a well for drinking water for the school children as well as for watering the school’s agricultural projects. Mr. Shako, a well specialist, came with his team all the way from Mbandaka, 670 km north of Nioki, for this task. They found water at a depth of 7 meters, but they continued to dig to 10 meters so that the school would have water in all seasons. Both the school and the population of Mabala are very grateful for the drinking water supply.

Construction of a henhouse at the school in Mabala

A henhouse was built on the school grounds in Mabala, which is connected to the lessons of the agro-veterinary school. With it, chicken breeding can begin.

New toilets on the school grounds

We also built four new toilet cabins next to the school, as the old ones were only temporary.

Opening of “ADH Agro-Veterinary School of 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)

Construction Phase in Mabala - Looking Back, Everything Went Very Fast

The construction work had only started shortly after Wolfgang’s Congo visit in April. It made speedy progress, due to the generous support of the German Embassy, which sponsored more than half of the construction costs.

Construction Phase in Mabala - The Team

ADH manager Jean in Kinshasa visited the construction site every two months and spent one week each time to help with the project. He reported that the team of workers worked harmoniously together, overseen by our local manager in Mabala, Mme. Annie. Gilbert in Kinshasa helped with the communication between all parties involved and he worked on the registration of the school. (Picture: Mme. Annie (right) with the team of construction workers)

Construction Phase in Mabala - Rapid Progress Thanks to Generous Support

It made speedy progress, due to the generous support of the German Embassy, which sponsored more than half of the construction costs. The other half came through the faithful gifts of our donors in Germany and the Czech Republic. Some support came even from Congo: the company FAMECO in Kinshasa donated all the iron bars, which were shipped to Nioki by boat. The wood company SODEFOR in Nioki helped with 60 % discount for the 120 school benches and tables.
