Why We Do What We Do?

Kinshasa is a city of more than 9 million people with one in ten Congolese living in the capital. It is host to an estimated 25,000 street children or “shegues”, most of who are orphans, having lost one or both parents before their adult years.

These figures continue to rise with violence, malnutrition and illnesses such as the AIDS endemic and malaria being great threats to the people. The lack of food, education or training worsens living conditions for these deprived young people and increases the level of illnesses and also socioeconomic difficulties. Often you find shegues orphaned as a result of their parents being killed by conflict or they may have become separated when they were forced to flee their homes.
