We will offer a host of resources and activities designed to enhance the literacy and language of a new generation of Congolese youth.
According to the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), every child is guaranteed a free, public education. However, due to rampant political corruption and regional violence, this promise has not been fulfilled. This is where the Lumumba Children’s Library and Learning Center (LCL) will come in. We aspire to employ cutting edge educational technology to increase literacy and enhance the learning experience for the children of Goma. It will encourage the sharing of information and foster critical thinking for all the children who have access to its many resources.
Cobo Construction and VIA Design Studio generously provided unique architectural designs of what will become the LCL.
