We work in Plateau de Bateke region of the Democratic Republic of Congo which was once known as a place of hunger, malnutrition and poverty.
Though it is an agrarian society, residents had little knowledge of farming, even though this region has the best soil on Earth for planting.
Lack of knowledge made them unable to harvest a living from the land and poverty, malnutrition, and starvation forced many to give up farming and leave, relocated to Kinshasa, the capital city with a population of 12 million. Unemployment rate of 70% in Kinshasa forced many into crime and prostitution.
