Each year we get more fired up to go deeper into the war-affected communities we serve — to see more children educated, to help create new job opportunities, and to provide much needed interventions in trauma counseling and aftercare.

This week, over a thousand of our students eagerly count down the days for the new term to begin — an opportunity that still does not exist for many in Eastern DR Congo where guns are more prevalent than pencils.

We want to give you a sneak peek into the lives of many of our students and staff, and feature new campaigns and projects. Each week over through October, we will unveil a new story centered around various themes.

This week we want to start off Fall 2015 with our students.
