Lamartine Byahenga, Home Based Literacy Learning
Years of violence within the Democratic Republic of the Congo have greatly impacted education for women and children. Alongside local nonprofit, FEDA, Lamartine Byahenga is developing a home-based literacy learning program for women and girls.
FEDA, founded in 2007, provides education and economic opportunities to women who were denied an education as a result of the conflict, and now need support to help rebuild their lives.
Lamartine and FEDA intend to use the home-based learning approach to promote female literacy, empower women to access services to reduce poverty, address HIV/AIDS prevention and help build peace.
Funding from the Pollination Project will be used to purchase supplies for the project.
