ORPHAN CRISIS IN DR CONGO
The Democratic Republic of Congo has been in a state of conflict and chaos since 1998, which marks the beginning of the Second Congo War. More than 5 million people have died in this conflict, making it one of the world’s deadliest wars. A striking 47% of those deaths were children under the age of five. Today, the nation remains in a state of desperation. Nearly 1 million people in the Congo have been displaced, forced to leave their homes. As a result, poverty, insecurity, sexual violence, and lack of social services have all taken a toll, according to a report from UNICEF.
The biggest issue faced in the Democratic Republic of Congo is war. The essence of war has left the country broken with a multitude of issues. Because of this, children were orphaned and left to defend themselves from the harsh realities of life.
GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. Generosity empowers everyone to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a core value that everyone can act upon.
Nearly 3000 children are orphans in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). They lost their parents to the Ebola virus, and they are sometimes rejected by their community. These children deserve our attention. Everyone knows that the loss of a parent has serious negative consequences in the life of a child, especially in developing countries like DRC.
Congo Renaissance Breath Corporation (CRBC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization legally recognized by the IRS. It’s currently engaged in the largest humanitarian response to help the handicap in DRC. At a time when we are all facing the pandemic, we are also working towards keeping these children healthy.

WHAT WE ARE DOING IN EDUCATION
Despite the enormous mineral wealth in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the country is still unable to manage the continued increase in population of the youth. This entails building new schools; regularly paying its teachers; providing a decent school environment; providing its schools with books, maps, video, archives, computers, and laboratories, as well as upgrading its curriculum in both primary and secondary schools in order to meet the educational needs of the youth in the digital age. Congo Renaissance Breath Corporation (CRBC) is seeking a grant in the amount of $289,000 to finance the construction of a new school to challenge the youth in the town of Kinzawu-Vuete. We wish to introduce new methods of instruction, high caliber freely available online learning, a library and a bilingual education that challenges the youth and introduces them to the digital world of learning to stimulate needed opportunities for intellectual growth and development for the Congolese youth.
The population of the DRC has been increasing at a faster rate going from 13.5 million people in 1958 to an estimated 86.7 million people in 2019 (1). As the world continues its relentless advance in computer technology, sciences, bio-medicine, mathematics, the youth in DRC are deprived of the opportunity to pursue their education as the rate of children who are out and drop out of school continue to increase.
