Thank you, my Canadian friends, for your endless support and love, especially to NEW EDINBURGH NEWS community. You guys have been amazing to me and to my folks in DRC.
This October 2018, I had the privilege of sharing my story again with one of Ottawa’s local Newspapers, “New Edinburgh News”. Here is another chance for you to read about my passion and future plan.

The Education System in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo is plagued with low coverage and poor quality. The ongoing conflicts have interrupted the education of thousands of youth and children. Many of them have been separated from their families, experienced abuse and been involved in harmful and exploitative labour. It’s hard for hundreds of your girls, boys and children to pursue their dreams and this is due to lack of means. Some guardians can’t afford the tuition for them.
This project will help schools and Universities in the Fizi Zone to achieve some of their goals and will bring a BIG CHANGE in a community where a student finishes his/her studies without reading a full textbook. I visited the Eastern part of DRC a couple of years ago, I didn’t see any libraries in Fizi Zone. You cannot imagine a University without a library. Some students never put their feet in a Library. The education sector in Fizi needs your support.
Here are a couple of pictures I took in 2015 of the school I attended during my childhood.
