In Congo, parents work together to improve their children's school

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, neighbors are working together with the International Rescue Committee to build up and improve their communities. They're making and influencing decisions that affect their communities' futures—for example, deciding whether to build new schools or health centers, improve roads or construct water collection points. The program, called Tuungane, has brought hope to more than 2.27 million people in eastern Congo since 2007.

In this video, meet one Congolese community that with the IRC's support increased their influence over their children's education and improved services in a local primary school.
