Youth Shelter


Matumaini’s mission is to educate, defend and protect underage girls in the Democratic Republic of Congo: orphans, in difficult family situations, victims of sexual violence, without families or for whom no family reintegration is possible.

Schooling is provided upon arrival, after a full medical visit, Matumaini and his team work for the personal development and fulfillment of each young girl. Manual psychomotor and artistic activities are organized inside and outside the center by volunteers and partners.

The extension of the rights of the child, the emancipation of the girl, the fight against discrimination based on gender and against sexual violence are, for Matumaini, essential points for sustainable development in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
