A Civil Engineer Hermano Toussaint from Haiti relocated in the Democratic Republic of Congo with his family to teach. In 1990, he decided to build a school for children in the small town of Mbandaka on the equator. The city is about 435 miles northeast of the capital Kinshasa.
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC); it is a country located in central Africa. It is the second largest country on the continent. The town of Mbandaka is a river port at the junction of the Congo and Ruki rivers and the capital of Equatorial province.
His dream was to offer access to a basic education to children in Mbandaka. Unfortunately, he died four years later and so did his dream. Today The Toussaint Foundation would like to continue his vision and advance education and relieve poverty for young people who are from financially disadvantaged backgrounds by undertaking several projects.
