Bringing Affordable and Quality Health Care and Education to thousands of Congolese
An estimated that 80% of the population of DR Congo live below the poverty line. Life expectancy is 52 years, and the infant mortality rate is 128/1000.
The precarious situation of the education sector is a source of social unease in a country where over 50% of the population is under 18 years old. Illiteracy among young people is high and only some 50% of children are able to attend school. BOMOKO, a consortium of Congolese Healthcare and Education NGOs, is working to make universal primary and secondary education accessible to all, while improving the education standards to provide Congole youth with the skills they need to help rebuild their country in the years to come.
For the most part, the healthcare infrastructure is in a state of total disrepair and the hygiene and safety conditions are largely unsuitable. In addition, healthcare professionals have little training resources and many have limited experience to provide effective healthcare services. A number of people, particularly in rural areas, have no easy access to healthcare professionals and facilities. Bomoko is working to change this.
