View of Kakungo Primary School, through a class room. Pinga, North Kivu, DR Congo.
Located at the top of a hill, Kakungo Primary School gives classes every morning. In the afternoon recreational activities are organized to keep students, especially teenagers, and prevent them of being enrolled in armed groups.
For children and teenagers who have been and are still being impacted by years of conflict in North Kivu, school teaches much more than sciences or literature. It gives a sense of return to normalcy, teaches how to live together in peace, and empower Youth for a brighter future.
That is why Education should always be a priority, in all circumstances.
