Rock & Roll!
Our team in Bukavu, DR Congo, Pastor Ephrem and his wife Deborah, started helping a group of about 100 homeless children and teens. Pastor Ephrem has started teaching them about business and had an idea to get the older ones (ages 14+) working together to make money. They began crushing large rocks and selling the "gravel." The teens are able to make enough money from selling the gravel to provide food and basic needs. They are learning about work and business. Many of them have not gone to school. The children under 14 have started selling charcoal door-to-door. These young teens are able to make money to both buy more charcoal and provide their own food. The pastors are working on finding solutions for these kids to get off the streets.
