Water's Life!...as you can see, with the four 10,000 liter "rain tanks" we had installed at Adumi school (a kilometer from Congo); brushing teeth, for bathing, washing clothes, cooking....ETC.
Water is Life!! Our local crew installs rain tanks so people won't go to the Adhu river, where infected flies on its banks is blinding 1/4 of the population. Now clean, safe water for all.
Our CEO encourages silliness, fun!..as each child gets the only photo they've ever had of themselves. They'll be rewarded their pictures after the day's gardening projects ends:)!
For children to keep an image of themselves, some never having even looked in a mirror.
The Efe Pygmy children of Nduye having a picture of themselves instead of BEING photographed. Magic, JOY!!
Pimbo, Eastern Congo (DRC) For children-students who've never had an image of themselves (no phones, laptops, etc), our Founder gave as many as she could a Polaroid picture:))!!!!
After years of improving the Primary school, the Headmistress-teachers residence was renovated; running water, toilets, solar light, to help ease the stress of a difficult place.
First computer lab for students; now materials arrived for toilets-showers for school staff, who were showering with monitor lizards and other vermin outside.
As Candace leaves for our Projects caring Pi Sigma Alpha students at YSU rally for funds to help the children caught in these Hellscapes.
28 Fifth-graders at Beverly Vista School, w/ teacher Kris Milliken, Fundraised their hearts out amongst fellow students and parents; resulting in an astonishing contribution towards helping the children and students of Africa.
Candace will be at our Projects in May; children there improvise games like nails-on-boards, and still use marbles; send a soccer ball or dvd (film) for our mobile cinema set-ups: Go to the JLP Wishlist
Stop kids who haven't any TV, wifi, computers, phones, video games, nor Cinemas from going to shacks where drunken men use generators to show porn. Buy HERE an appropriate dvd-film for us to show them a movie at their school.
Candace will be at our Projects soon: Children in these Hellscapes have little joy, wanna make their month, buy a dvd-movie (HERE); especially an African produced film, they'll be sure and see it on a makeshift Bush Cinema (Isoke below) or a Mobile-traveling one.
Our CEO's heading to our Projects; Soccer is everything to children without phones, TV, cinema, WiFi, video-games etc! She'll gladly schlep soccer balls there if you'll buy 'em: HERE . This way they won't play with dirty plastic bags wrapped together with string!
We established a computer lab for girls at their primary school; and by August there'll be new toilets and showers for teachers and Headmistress; otherwise they'll bathe with the infamous monitor lizards that infest the place:)!
Our Mobile Cinema operating for 5 years, going school to school, left with the population that fled to Uganda. Kajo Keji is now a battlefield. It brought education, recreation and news from the outside world to isolated students. The moment things calm down we'll return.
Sponsored Xavier High School students brought loads of enthusiasm to our sold-out Charity Ride, "Soulcycle". A win-win: proceeds go to our Projects you hear so much about concerning the children in Africa, and kids here made happy as well!
Our rain tank arrived for the Deputy-Headteacher and the nurse; another 4 are due at its school, 2 kilometers from the Congo. Water! is a developing world crisis. But students get more excited about a soccer ball, THE African sport; help provide some go to our WISHLIST
