Dear CKC Partner,

Covenant Kids Congo has had an amazing summer so far! Let us fill you in on what we’ve been up to:

Partner and Educate

We began our summer by traveling to Gather ’15 in Kansas City to share program updates and thank our partners. It was great to be there with our colleagues President Jules Mboka and his wife Charlotte. We greatly value time¬†spent with our Congolese partners who help us broaden our understanding and deepen our knowledge of Congo and our work together. We also shared the story of Deborah, a 10 year old girl that benefits from Covenant Kids Congo in Gemena. Click the link below to step into her world! Watch Deborah’s Story.

Step into Congo at CHIC

High school students put themselves in the shoes of their Congolese peers to learn what a day in the life of a Congolese student is like. Read our Covenant Newswire feature, and learn how this experience impacted North American students. Read the Covenant Newswire article.

WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene)

Injustice related to water access is one of the largest challenges we are tackling through Covenant Kids Congo. In addition to water access we educate on sanitation and hygiene. CKC has trained an impressive 180,858 people in Gemena on improved hygiene practices. This kind of investment in training means that behaviors will shift so when clean water comes, the source will remain protected and people will be informed and invested in their water source.

We are so grateful for your partnership and your prayers! “Life is hard in Congo, but we don’t cross our arms. We look for a way forward.” – Deborah, 10 year old girl, Gemena, DRC. Please continue praying for strength and a way forward for Deborah, and her community!
