Primary School

Primary School

The Love Does Primary school is located in Goma, a city on the far east side of the Democratic Republic of Congo near the border of Rwanda. Goma has been unstable since the Kivu conflict, an armed conflict between the military and an armed rebel group that began in 2004.

We know that educating children living in conflict zones empowers them to break the cycle of war and build a culture of peace. Attending school restores normalcy, even in the midst of dissension, and helps to restore hope in these communities.

This is why, despite escalating conflict and ongoing insecurity, the Love Does and Aurora schools in the Congo are so important. Together with our wonderful friend Lauren Daigle and her foundation, the Price Fund, and in partnership with Justice Rising, the Love Does Primary school supports 300 students! It fosters academic success and creates a safe environment for education; even amidst danger and many uncertainties, the students still spread joy throughout the school. 

The Love Does and Aurora Primary Schools remain resilient pillars in the community, continuing to flourish and grow thanks to the directors and staff who create a nurturing, safe haven for students. We are cheering these amazing students and staff on in all they do!
