CAL in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

A donation from the Westside Community Church in Morden, Manitoba provided the impetus for establishing a CAL school in in the city of Kikwit in the southwest of DRC. About 60 computers were also collected in Manitoba and shipped to Kikwit. The educational content on the computers includes the mandatory elementary and high school curricular materials specific to the DRC, a library (with a component of peace literature) and encyclopedia, dictionaries, and an atlas. Vocational sewing instruction is also offered at the school. By the beginning of November, 2023, enrollments in the academic and vocational programs were 105 and 15, respectively.
