For the people of the Katanga province, DRC, Pamoja Tujenge will build self-sufficiency in health, education and agriculture in an environmentally sustainable manner.
Did you know that 33% of the African population suffers from malnutrition? Less than 50% of Africa’s population has access to hospitals or doctors. The majority of rural African communities don’t have access to safe water. The average life expectancy is 41 years. Only 57% of African children are enrolled in primary education, and only one of three children complete school. One in six children die before the age of 5. Less than one person out of five has electricity.
We are committed to building health clinics, schools and farms that will be staffed by local people. Health clinics will provide medical care in the areas of malnutrition, malaria, sexually transmitted diseases and general health and well-being.
Schools will work with pre-school and school-aged children building language, mathematics and science skills. Co-operative farms with irrigation systems will help rural African communities attain food security.
