The Ngbaka Educate Their Own

ngbakaOpeningThe Ngbaka People number over one million, most of whom live in some 1500 villages in the extreme Northwest corner of the Democratic Republic of Congo, known formerly as Zaïre, and before that as the Belgian Congo.

Today, 60,000 adults attend Ngbaka adult education classes organized by churches. Ngbaka materials are used in 91 primary schools, with 9,000 children in class. Because no teachers’ salaries have been paid since 1997, these are almost the only functioning primary school in the area… Against all odds!
