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.
