The Voss Foundation has sponsored a well, built by Solutions for Africa, which is a vital part of the GMF school. Thanks to Voss, there is no need for girls to walk for hours to get fresh water, allowing them more time for education and increasing their safety.

MISSION MADE POSSIBLE BY POSITIVITY
On his last visit to RDC, Yamandou battled with bureaucracy and mosquitoes to galvanise the construction of the school in Kalebuka. He smiled through meetings with donors and diplomats, he embraced the people of the village who offered their labor, and he negotiated costs with construction companies and contractors.
This school is not just about education. It is about a holistic approach to poverty alleviation, complete with solutions to health and hygiene, as well as income generation and employability skills.
We are teaching the people of the village to make bricks for use in the upcoming construction. We are in the final push of building phase one of this school. Please help us get the children into the classrooms by donating what you can so that we can create a space where they can begin their journey towards empowerment.
Thanks to all of you, the GMF dream is able to stay alive!
