The Tosangana Foundation successfully provided education for underprivileged children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo until the school year of 2016-2017. Unfortunately the foundation had to turn children down for the first time in 2015-2016 due to a lack of space in the classrooms. For that reason they built 6 more classrooms and 4 additional toilets. The classrooms were immediately put to use due to necessity even though they didn’t have enough furniture and the walls and floors hadn’t been tiled yet. Furthermore, there were windows and doors missing which meant that the space was very cold and dusty.
In January 2017, the foundation started a project that improved the children’s learning environment by providing the school with the necessary maintenance and renovation. The classrooms were tiled, windows and doors were built in, the classrooms were provided with furniture and toilets.
The project was executed by the Tosangana Foundation and their partner Femmes en Action. They focus on agriculture, education, women, peace and safety.
By improving the classrooms, the children can safely attend class and continue their academic development.
