Remembering the campaign “To the rhythm of Congo”

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT  VIDEO BY THE CHILDREN OF KIKONKA

Through the solidarity campaign carried out during the 2018-2019 academic year, we wanted to delve into the transformative power of education. We did this by promoting quality education in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Seventy-eight Piarist centres in ten countries (Spain, Bolivia, Brazil, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Cameroon, Gabon, Senegal, the Philippines and Indonesia) worked on teaching the students the value of education as an engine for change, exposing the Piarist reality of the Republic Democratic of the Congo.
In addition to raising awareness on the value of education, we have raised funds for the Piarist mission in the conurbation of Kikonka (DRC). Due to this, we will be able to send over €223,000 in order to improve the education of children through rehabilitation, providing primary school equipment, improving sanitation with the construction of new latrines and two water wells, and improving the living standards for a group of 100 women in the community.
¡Gracias! Thank you! Merci! Obrigado!
