Sarah’s School started out very simply with a need. The need was that children were hungry and unattended while their mothers and fathers were attending university classes, and vocational training. In the DR Congo, it is estimated that half of the women are illiterate. One meal a day, usually in the evening, is the norm in many parts of the world.
A wonderful woman named Lau Kenzo decided to do something and started Sarah’s School – donating her own salary to fund a preschool. We heard about it and joined in. We helped by funding some safety upgrades at the school as well as helped with the hiring of a teacher and food.
Today, Sarah’s School in the DR Congo is self-sufficient!!
