In Swahili, “Matumaini” means “hope,” and our organization is dedicated to helping the girls home live up to its name – providing hope and empowerment to the future of movers and shakers of the DRC.
Providing Basic Needs
Our partners have done an amazing job of providing shelter, education, and care for these girls; but there is still a significant need for sustained nutritional improvements, the establishment of a clean water source, and general facility maintenance.
By addressing these concerns, we empower these girls to grow and learn without the fear of or focus on meeting their basic needs.
Establishing Tools for Success
It’s a given, access to consistent electricity and internet are crucial in our time when it comes to getting ahead. By providing an off-grid supplemental energy source, as well as a secured and protected portal to the web, we’re providing these girls with the tools for success and empowering them to chase their goals… I know of at least two future doctors, a future lawyer, and teacher in their ranks!
Mobilizing A Network
In the Congo, as it is everywhere else, it’s all about who you know. Matumaini Means Hope is dedicated to establishing a Network of partners, both local to the Congo and abroad, the can help empower these girls to chase after their educational and career goals.
