Institute Kunda Dia Zayi

Tumba, DRCongo

In the rural and isolated areas of Tumba, the Kunda Dia Zayi Institute was constructed to address an urgent need for education. The few schools which exist in this remote area are too far from local villages to make education accessible to needy children. The construction of the Kunda Dia Zayi Institute allows children to complete primary and secondary education. Thanks to student scholarships, community outreach, and teacher training, many young girls who are often excluded from secondary education have the opportunity to pursue their studies. Teachers and families in particularly difficult situations live on campus thanks to spaces made available by the school.

Each year, 80 girls receive a scholarship, the school offers a semi-residential professional training program for girls who have left school.
