Congo is the third largest country in Africa and yet one of the poorest nations in the world. There are few doctors or other public services. In the capital city of Kinshasa tens of thousands of children are living on the streets. Millions go without education or food each day.

Goma is a city of approximately one million people on the Eastern border of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Goma is just next to Gisenyi, Rwanda. The Eastern part of the Congo has been involved with war and violence for many years. It is estimated that two to three million people died in the Congo during the last twenty years of the war. The average per capita income in the Congo is three hundred dollars, which is the cost of school expenses for one year for a child.
