Books on canoes

THE CHARITY

IN A FEW WORDS

Books on canoes is a charity fighting against rural exodus by promoting the right to education for children living near rivers.

Located in Brussels (Belgium), the charity aims to accompany and to send education and culture to needy children living in sub-Saharan Africa.

Moreover, Books on Canoes regularly conducts advocacy missions as well as campaigns aiming to sensitize public, governmental authorities, medias and civil society to the problem of children drownings on their way to school.

 

THE CHARITY

Our construction projects

The Democratic Republic of Congo is the first country where Book of Canoes is active. In rural zones of the country, access to education is particularly difficult. Our concern is to help children to forge a better future where they were born. The charity undertakes very concrete actions on the spot.

Our actions

In the marginalized areas of the Manzanka territory, children have to go alone to school on canoes as access to education is particularly difficult. With 70% of children who do not know how to swim and the dangers of the Congo river, school children go to school at the risk of their lives. That is how unfortunately they end up drowning on their way to school.

 

For these reasons, Books on canoes have decided to undertake concrete actions to offer a safer way to school and better schooling conditions for children.

Firstly, we have a partnership with a school in the fishing camp of Nganda-Mosolo in which we have installed running water and built sanitation.

Secondly, we have built our first school boat which allow children to access education safely.

And today, our priority is to build a local school on stilts in the island of Nganda-Nsenge (Mankanza Territory).

We need your help to allow these school children to benefit better educational conditions. Donate, save a life !
