Ndako Ya Bana Charity Evening
4.06.2018, Kinshasa, DRC – Kinshasa school project ‘Ndako ya bana’, proudly supported by TMB since its founding, is hosting a “Blind Test” charity evening, taking place at Sultani Hotel, on 8 June 2018, at 7.00 pm. TMB is delighted to support the event.
Ndako ya bana means “Children’s Home” in Lingala. Ndako ya bana is an educational centre for disadvantaged children.
The project applies Montessori materials and pedagogy, which is an active pedagogy, open to the world, that facilitates the development of children’s’ autonomy.
The school currently welcomes 24 disadvantaged children aged 3 and 4 from the commune of Kintambo, in Kinshasa. Another eight children are expected to join the school by September of this year.
Each enrolled child receives a medical examination. Everyone gets a daily balanced menu, with two meals, lunch, and snack. Clothes are distributed to families. In addition, various activities are organised including a Christmas gift distribution project, a carnival party, dance classes, and more.
In the long-term the project is aiming to open a school for children aged up to 12 years, with three classrooms: 3-6 years, 6-9 years, and 9-12 years. A second objective of the project is to launch adult literacy classes for parents of the school’s children.
