The Nyantende Foundation strives to bridge the education gap that exists between the developed and developing world. It is a student-run organization operating across multiple Canadian university campuses with the purpose of offering the most marginalized youth in Nyantende (a district in the Democratic Republic of Congo) the opportunity to attend local primary and secondary schools.
Nyantende Foundation’s mission is to develop a new generation of skilled, educated youth in Nyantende who are capable of securing gainful employment, starting businesses and helping re-build the community’s economy. We believe education is a basic human necessity as it provides youth with the tools necessary to build a life they have reason to value.
Since its inception in 2010, Nyantende Foundation has subsidized 100% of tuition fees and learning materials for over 250 youth.
