Supporting children’s rights in the DRC

We here at Human Act have once again worked together with ConnectHer to form a new partnership with the NGO, Génération Epanouie (Blooming Generation in French). Our work in the DRC supports children’s rights to education, providing scholarships and other materials.

Human Act has supported Génération Epanouie through funding targeted to provide scholarships and educational resources for children growing up in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. These resources are hugely beneficial in supporting a strong education for a generation who struggle to access such educational support and opportunities. To date, Human Act has supplied over 70 scholarships for girls in the region, with 50 attending a secondary school education and 20 receiving a primary level education. The scholarship ensures the children receive all the resources and materials they need to succeed and a monitoring service to ensure the children are making positive academic and social progress.
