In 2006, there were 13,500 street kids in Kinshasa. Now, according to UNICEF estimates, there are more than 25,000. Children in the Democratic Republic of Congo have seen their lives threatened, their families torn aparts, their schools destroyed, and their futures compromised by war and religion. Many are homeless , abandoned on the street, accused of witchcraft, others born of rape or orphaned by war and religion. Many of the children who have been accused of witchcraft; we are told that when fathers take second wives, they often don’t have enough money to feed all the children, so some are labelled “sorciers” (“witches”) and put out on the street. This money will go towards building homes and youth center where educational training and life skills will be providedfor children living on the street of kinshasa by volunteer coming from all over the world. This is a country where life expectancy at birth is just 49 years of age in 21st century.
