Due to poverty, unemployment, and other hardships, many families in Beni and the surrounding area are unable to afford school fees for even the most basic education for their children. As a result, these children are left vulnerable and families uncertain of their future. Without education, they lack opportunities to improve their lives and will remain mired in poverty.
Through our Center for Holistic Family Development, we are reaching this most vulnerable portion of the population with loving, quality, primary education. La Charité Primary School serves more than 300 children in grades K-6. Core academic instruction, physical exercise, music, and a loving environment are all part of the services we provide.
The mission of the Center for Holistic Family Development is to renew Congolese families and empower them to flourish economically, socially, and spiritually. La Charité helps to further this mission by directly serving the most vulnerable children in our community.
