09. Apprenticeship for carpenters – Pygmy community – D. R. Congo
One of our goals in the Democratic Republic of Congo is to create jobs by improving the technical skills of the local population of North Kivu. Thanks to the initiative of Alvine, one of the Congohounds of the Virunga National Park, who generously supports the vulnerable community of local pygmies with his own means, we have decided to finance a carpentry apprenticeship project in Rumangabo. The project will involve 40 participants, including 15 pygmies who will move and remain in Rumangabo for the entire project, six months. Our financial support for the project includes the rent of the house, the teacher’s salary and all equipment. The operations will be managed by the Dodobahati Foundation, our partner who has been operating in that region for many years, under the supervision of ranger Alvine.
