Kinshasa, 26 December, 2022 / 9:04 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are facilitating the payment of salaries for teachers at Don Bosco Shasha in Mupfunya Shanga-Shasha village and the education of needy learners in the area that is part of Masisi Territory.
In a report published Monday, October 31, SDB officials speak about the financial assistance that Salesian Missions, the U.S. development arm of SDB, has given to realize the proper functioning of Don Bosco Shasha.
“Orphans attending Don Bosco Shasha, located in the Mupfunya Shanga-Shasha village received support through donor funding from Salesian Missions,” SDB officials say.
They add, “The funding paid teachers’ salaries and covered the cost of school fees for 55 orphans, including 23 girls, whose families could not afford schooling.”
SDB officials further note that the “students receiving funding through this project were selected because they have benefited from counseling and additional psychological support.”
