Giving Back to Africa believes in fostering education through an asset-based and service learning-based approach to development. Working with local organizations is a critical component of this, as we are able to work together with partnering schools and organizations to nurture the exchange of resources and expertise. We believe in the power of making connections and providing a platform for personal storytelling.
Giving Back to Africa is excited to announce that it is now in partnership with En Classe. GBA partners with En Classe’s Lukunga Primary and Secondary School in Kinshasa. En Classe’s mission is to improve education and to build brighter futures for thousands of Congolese children. It is a Dutch foundation and was founded in 2007. En Classe works from the ground up with its partner schools to help transform the schools and the environments surrounding them. En Classe is currently working in 25 schools in Kinshasa.
Other Giving Back to Africa partnerships include: College des Saviors, Rivers of the World, Rotary Club Gombe, one of seven Rotary Clubs in Kinshasa, and Rotary Club Bloomington, IN, and the Protestant University of Congo. We look forward to continuing our partnering work with all of these organizations in 2015.
