  • To keep construction simple and efficient
  • To provide basic but effective education and medical care
  • To provide a legacy for the community

What sets Boise To Bukavu apart?

Boise To Bukavu is not a charity set up in the wake of a one-off disaster, nor is it the creation of governments or large NGOs.

Boise To Bukavu is the brainchild of Fidel Nshombo, a refugee with a deep personal understanding of the needs of that unique community.

Boise To Bukavu doesn’t seek to change the world, rather it seeks to make a genuine, sustainable difference on the ground in a desperately needy community.

Funds received go to the organization’s joint efforts of building a successful primary school and freeing mothers and their newborn children from confinement.
