The following are the Child of the Earth’s short and long term projects

Immediate and ongoing projects:

Library: So far we have shipped materials such like library desks, books and other library accessories, part of items came from greenStandards ltd. We are now working on the construction of library structure in Kinshasa. To achieve this, we have organized fundraising event in Calgary and we plan to continue organizing fundraising and seek other means of raising money such like selling donated items that can be sold here and also seek for donors.

The Vocational Training Center primarily for women and youth: By creating a place where women can learn and improve their skills in specific areas, they would be empowered to create a way to make money and thus be independent. The Vocational Training Center would also be a place for children to learn a trade so that they would never have to experience the helplessness that so many of their mothers have endured.
