emerge poverty free


Project Emmanuel Children's Centre

DR Congo

Emmanuel Children's Centre is situated in Marungu, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and is only accessible during dry season from June to September providing that that area is free of conflict.

The Centre was at the time home to 51 orphans who receive food, healthcare and education. emerge poverty free’s involvement has been mainly to make the Centre self-sustainable and to this extent we purchased a grinding mill to be used for the community as an income generator. Furthermore, in April 2011 we funded an agricultural programme and fencing off the land. The crops planted included potatoes, maize and cabbage and these were being consumed by the children. The children now enjoy better variety and more nutritious food while the food costs have significantly reduced. The extra money saved continues to be spent on other necessities such as clothes and shoes.
