About us

Our primary goal is to improve the lives and future prospects of abandoned children and young people in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In concrete terms, we want to do this by installing internet cafés in cooperation with children's homes where teenage orphans will get vocational training. Through their participation in the internet café these young people will acquire key personal skills such as independence, responsibility and teamwork, as well as valuable practical knowledge in IT, the internet and business practice.

At the same time we want to use the infrastructure to make other disadvantaged children and young people familiar with the use of computers and the internet: for children from poor families a unique opportunity perhaps to change their lives. Only 3% of the Congolese population had access to the internet in 2013.

Basically, we have two major goals. In a country like the Democratic Republic of Congo, which occupies the second-last place (186 of 187) in the Human Development Index of the United Nations (Germany is ranked 6th) orphans have virtually no chance of a good future or even a self-determined and fulfilled life. We have experienced this first hand and we want to change it. We simply want to give these children the opportunity to acquire skills that will give them the edge they would otherwise probably never get. Our second major goal is based on the idea that global participation is no longer possible today without computers and the internet: those who do not master this technology will never make this connection.


Certainly our initiative is just a small step to improve the situation. But we are all convinced that even the smallest contribution helps and that a single life changed for the better counts is significantly important.

Ich habe 5.254,61 € Spendengelder erhalten

Wie auch hier in Deutschland hat für die Kinder in unserem Süd-Kivu Projekt das neue Schuljahr begonnen. Mit den vielen Spenden, die wir von euch erhalten haben, können wir auch in diesem Jahr allen Kindern den Schulbesuch ermöglichen. In diesem Jahr wechselten vier weitere Kinder aus der sechsten Klasse der Grundschule in die weiterführende Schule. Alle Kinder und Jugendliche in diesem Projekten erhielten eine neue Schuluniform, die von den Misericorde Frauen geschneidert wurden. Außerdem gab es Bücher, Hefte, Stifte und andere Materialien für alle. Große Freude von Seiten der Schulstarter bescherte auch eine ganze Stange Seife, eine Tube Zahnpasta und eine Zahnbürste für jedes unserer Kids. Die Kleinsten haben gleich versprochen jeden Tag ihre Zähne zu putzen.
