example 2: BRAZZART – ART CHARITY
Because we believe that every child has the right to have a dream and work towards its realization
The Republic of Congo. A corner of the world where many dream of an education, a job, or a daily meal. The children from “Coeur Immacule de Marie” – an orphanage hosting 15 children in the suburbs of Brazzaville – were no exception. The first time we visited the orphanage, poverty and bad living conditions were the major obstacles to the incredible energy and joy of the children we met.
The caretaker of the orphanage, Adrien, was struggling to get voluntary contributions and was ready to close the orphanage, exposing the children to even more vulnerability. Because orphanages do not receive any public aid in Congo, donors are essential but unpredictable.Adrien started his own honey production from the only means he had left, hoping to generate a sustainable income source to provide continuous food and education to the children. But beginnings are very difficult, and the needs – especially of food and sanitation – were immediate, so we decided to help.
