Pygmies are a neglected minority in the Kalemie region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Elementary age kids are discriminated against in school. They experience racial stereotyping and social exclusion. Because of this, many drop out of school, leaving them mired in an ongoing cycle of poverty. Pygmies needed a school that would accept them and their parents. The church has built a school that will bring together pygmy and non-pygmy families in an inclusive environment. Meanwhile, the mothers have the opportunity to study literacy in the afternoons.
