Fundraiser BBQ for Congo Grace Orphanage

"Eight years ago we started supporting Grace Orphanage in Congo to care for 35 war orphans. Our first goal was to send all the children to school. About half the children had learning challenges. We brought after school teachers to the orphanage to help the kids and in 2018 these amazing children had a 100% pass rate. Two of our children are now attending a local university and one is awaiting the start of a technical program.

We are excited to report that all the 32 remaining children passed their 2021/22 school year. The children are excited to return to school on September 5 to start the new school year. We are asking for your support to help these special children continue their education.

They attend Grand Lac school in Uvira, which is a good school with limited class sizes (max 30 students). The school requires the orphanage to pay the school fees up front. The fees include monthly school fees, uniforms, books, administration and exam fees, personal hygiene and project fees, etc. The cost is $350 per student for the year ($35 per month). Any amount you donate helps us give these children an education, which we believe is the first step to get them out of the grip of poverty, so prevalent in DRC, one of the poorest countries in the world."
