This Saturday, the five stakes in Kinshasa opened the Center For Young Adults. The center is in the building in which we are housed. This is a great building. We have a nice kitchen, a game room, class rooms, our office, and just added an "internet cafe," a room with 5 computers and a library where the young adults can come to study, social network, and just hang out.
We always have several young adults hanging around our office. They can use our three computers if PEF students are not using them for applications. Now, they have a place of their own.
The concept is to increase the number of institute classes here - there are three nice classromms - as well as adding English classes, music classes, and other cultural events.
There are few places in the DR Congo where youth can meet and socialize in a safe, clean environment.
A retired Congolese couple has been called as Center for Young Adult Coordinators. It will be their job to be here for the kids, keep things open, and of course under control.
The kick-off meeting was held Saturday. Suzanne played the piano and I made a presentation on Perpetual Education Fund, and other spoke, and then they took a tour.
