konga - Freundeskreis Tshuapa e.V.

managed by W. Leinen (Communication)

About us

The "Konga - Friends Tshuapa eV", short Konga eV sees itself as a partner of the local self-help organisations of Tshuapa - region in the Equateur Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The "Konga e.V." provides a forum in German society and a platform for mutual exchange. He advises, accompanies and supports their projects on the ground in terms of helping people help themselves and in the context of sustainable development.

As an association, we promote awareness of the marginalized inhabitants of the rainforest and its interests in the European public. The main focus is the promotion of justice, maintaining their livelihoods and the integrity of creation.

The Konga Association promotes and supports the exchange and partnership between groups and individuals of different cultures.

The region Bokungu - Ikela lies isolated in the equatorial rain forest at Tshuapa river, tributary of the Congo in the Democratic Republic of Congo. To 42,000 km2 lives a population of about 600,000 people, mainly from agriculture in very poor conditions. Main problem is the lack of transportation to evacuate products such as beans, corn, rice, palm oil, fish, rubber to the 800 or 1500 km away markets. The years of war followed by military occupation until 2004 has almost completely destroyed the existing infrastructure. Today, the area suffers from extreme depopulation especially the younger. Together with the local self-help organizations, Konga Association strives to improve the living conditions in the region and thus not least to preserve the intact rainforest with its enormous importance for the global climate . Currently supports the German partner organization, the school project of the Fondation Frere du Paysan Bokungu -Ikela (FFPA). The approximately 300 primary and secondary schools offer educational opportunities for more than 200,000 children. With few exceptions, these schools have little to no equipment. Thus, the children sit normally on the floor and write on their knees. FFPA wants to change that and give the children an adequate learning environment. She concludes with the parents' committees contracts for the rehabilitation of school buildings and grounds and take care in return for the provision of locally manufactured simple school desks, which are also the local craftsmen work and bread. Thus, a positive and creative cycle is set in motion, which broadcasts to the whole society. The material cost of a school desk will be approximately 15 EUR. To equip an average school, around 120 school desks are needed. More info:

Ich habe 329,50 € Spendengelder erhalten

Mit dieser Überweisung ist das Projekt "Einführung der Honigwirtschaft, Imkerei statt Baumfällen" der Waldbauernselbsthilfe im Tshuapa - Regenwald der Chefferie des Nkole - Volkes ausfinanziert. Nach der erfolgreichen Ausbildung von Jungimkern und der Errichtung von Bienenständen in 4 Dörfern mit insgesamt 100 Beuten und der zweiten Phase der Schulung in Honigverarbeitung kann mit der dritten Phase die Nachhaltigkeit des Pionierprojektes gesichert werden: Bau eines insekten- und staubsicheren lokalen Honighauses sowie Ergänzung der Imkerausrüstung. Bilder vom neuen Honighaus haben wir in der Galerie eingestellt. Die Waldbauern sind mächtig stolz, auch dass ihr Honig schon den Weg über den Kongofluss ins weit entfernte Kongo - Brazzaville gefunden hat. Internetvernetzung und Austausch via facebook macht's möglich. Konga e.V. hilft gerne.  Mit dem Erlös will die Selbsthilfevereinigung FADECOM die Ausbreitung der Imkerei in weitere Regenwalddörfer unterstützen, sowie mittelfristig für ein dauerhafteres Blechdach des Honighauses sparen. Wie der lokale Projektleiter mitteilt, hilft der Honigverkauf den Bauernfamilien jetzt schon, die Schulgebühren für ihre Kinder zu bezahlen. Die nächste Ernte steht an, informiert der Bauernvertreter über den messenger. Wir wünschen viel Erfolg und danken allen Unterstützern auch im Namen unserer kongolesischen Freunde. Wenn die Waldbewohner am afrikanischen Äquator menschenwürdig leben können, (über-) lebt auch der Regenwald, die grüne Lunge unserer Welt.
