Japan Helps UNICEF Repair Schools in Congo

    Japan has donated $6.6 million to help UNICEF improve the quality of education available to children in Congo.

    The funds will be used for a three-year project that aims to reach some 8,000 children who are excluded from the country’s formal school system.

    The project includes building and equipping 36 early childhood development centers and rehabilitating some 18 re-schooling centers across Congo, according to a UNICEF news release.
