The Republic of the Congo has abundant oil reserves, a large surface of arable land, vast natural forests, mining reserves, a highly developed hydrographic network, a climate favourable to agriculture and a biodiversity that is essential on a global scale for regulating greenhouse gases. Its geographical position in Central Africa and its access to the sea complete its list of strategic assets.
Yet, in Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire in particular, many children live on the streets. Impoverishment of families, dropping out of school, divorce, remarriage, abuse, etc. push children to flee their homes. Consequently they are unprotected, vulnerable to risks such as human trafficking or sexual exploitation.
TGH works with these children with its local partner, REIPER, by organising rounds, projects in favour of incarcerated juveniles in Brazzaville, improving health conditions in reception centres and setting up a school monitoring or vocational training process for juveniles experiencing social disruption or family break-ups.
This project is part of the multi-country programme for street children implemented in the Central African Republic and the Republic of the Congo.
