‘ Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world’.
-Nelson Mandela –
The showcase is on Saturday 4th June 2016, at The ripple centre in central barking.
We are fundraising to support a total of 75 children across 2 orphanages in Congo kinshasa with the cost of their education.
Orphanage 1: orphelinat notre dame de liesse in Meteo Kinshasa has a total of 46 children from the age of 9 months – 18 years old both males and females. The orphanage relies on donations in order to look after these children . With all this being said there is a total number of 12 children who are currently out of education and home schooled due to lack of funding . School fees vary on the child’s academic year.
Orphanage 2: Matumaini in Kinshasa has recently opened an alphetication centre for street girls who are less not to be able to go to school, some of these are also mothers. Although the centre is free to attend the orphanage has to also pay the teachers and for materials to help run this centre to be able to give the women the life skills they need such as sewing machines to teach them to sew and be able to make a living from themselves.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting our team, they are priced at £20 each . £30 couples.
