Mitendi Primary School Building

This project seeks to raise $169,351 to build the Mitendi Primary School building.

Goal: $167,351

About This Mission Project

Four years ago, the Congolese Baptist Women started the Mitendi Primary School using classrooms in the Mitendi Women’s Center. The school now serves 330 students. The building can no longer accommodate both the women’s program and the primary school.

Plans to build a separate building for the primary school have been approved. It will include six classrooms, a library that will double as a meeting room, a store room and an administrative office. This building will have the capacity to serve more than twice the number of students currently enrolled—and it will also free up the women’s center building for its intended purpose of ministering to young, at-risk women.

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to raise $169,351 to build the Mitendi Primary School building.

This project will be managed by Jill Lowery, missionary to the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Pauline Mfulu; and engineer Freddy Ngalumulume.

It is anticipated that this project will be able to break ground once 80% of the funding has been received.
