Implementing the SDGs at
grassroots in Africa
The Family Africa
Overview by Rachel Aird, Chairperson of
The Family Africa
Case study: Democratic Republic of Congo
by Clotilde Volpe, Project Manager The
Family Africa (Espoir Congo)

 This presentation will give a brief overview of the way
in which The Family Africa is involved in the
implementation of the SDGs throughout Africa. We will
then focus on a case study of the work in the Democratic
Republic of Congo where the community based projects
intersect with the goals of SDGs 1-7 and result in the
effective empowerment of local people, especially
women and children in the areas of health, education and
poverty relief.

The Family Africa team spans the Continent of Africa
working together to help fulfill the Sustainable
Development Goals and is committed to changing lives
for the better in challenging places.

Keys to Success
Projects are often a reflection of the team’s skill set and
expertise, project leaders are committed for the long
term, motivated by their faith, combined with a desire to
meet the specific needs of the community.
Culturally sensitive. Working with local chiefs and tribal
councils
 Building local partnerships with business and civil society
Adaptability. Perhaps your plan is not the best plan for the
community.
Keys to Success
As we say in South Africa boer maak 'n plan –
"farmer makes a plan" is an expression used to refer to a
creative solution, often low-cost and rather
innovative.
Don’t promise things you may not be able to do.
Persevere. Know that there will be challenges so
be prepared for setbacks without giving up.
Integrity is a priority.
How Espoir Congo implements
the SDGs
DR Congo
DR Congo
 I am going to talk about the first 7 SDGs and
how our work intersects with them. As Rachel
pointed out, projects are sometimes a reflection
of our own skill set but are more about the needs
of the society in which we are working. In this
way our projects grow organically as need and
response interact.
SDG 1
DR Congo: The challenge
Poverty has worsened in the Republic of Congo
since the 1980s and half the country's people now live
below the poverty line. This average, however,
masks wide geographic and economic inequalities.
Most of the country's poor people (64.8 per cent) live
in rural areas and women are among the hardest hit
by poverty.

DR Congo
 We provide education, health-care, and
vocational training to the village of Kikimi. Plots
of land are made available to the population to
grow their own vegetables. A capital amount is
given to entrepreneurs to start a micro-business
of their choice which is carefully monitored and
mentoring is available for those who need it.
Growing crops
Medical equipment. Tool sets
Charging phones. Tailoring
Starting a computer lab or a shop
Or a pharmacy. What ever the micro-business
it means people are working their way out of
poverty,
SDG 2
DR Congo: the challenge
 7.7 million people face acute hunger - a
30 percent increase over the last year ( the
Food and Agriculture Organization of the
United Nations (FAO))
DR Congo
 Children can concentrate on their classes
much better when they are not hungry.
Breakfast and snacks are given to all the
children in our schools.
A hot meal is served to the vulnerable children in
the evenings. Food packages are distributed to the
nursing mothers.
SDG 3
Espoir Congo: The need
 Death in childbirth: According to estimates by the World Health
Organization (WHO), there were 740 maternal deaths per 100,000 live
births in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in 2005 [1]. The
DRC is thus one of 17 countries with a maternal mortality ratio higher
than 700 in 2005.The DRC is one of the most dangerous countries in
which to conceive. Over her lifetime, a Congolese woman faces a one in
24 chance of dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth. The
country is one of six that account for half of all deaths from maternal
causes globally. In its annual "State of the World's Mothers" report, the
charity Save the Children listed the DRC among the 10 worst places in
the world to be a mother.
Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution
We built and run a medical center/maternity where 62
healthy babies were delivered last year with zero
neonatal mortality. Women receive pre-and post-natal
care and training and a package with baby clothes is
offered to the mother at each delivery. Mosquito nets
are being used and children are inoculated.
Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution
(stats from 2016)
Medicine distributed 4013
 No. tests performed 215
# of people assisted 551
# of orphaned children assisted 103
# of prenatal examinations 98
# of hearing impaired assisted 67
# of seeing impaired assisted 12
# of mentally handicapped assisted 42
# of physically handicapped assisted 14
# of newborns 62

Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution 202
 260
 We also treated people with
malaria, typhoid and conducted
85 ante and post natal classes.
SDG 4
Education: the challenge 202
 260
School enrolment rates are declining. More than 4.4
million children (nearly half the school-age
population) are not in school. This number includes
2.5 million girls and 400,000 displaced children.
Child labour is commonplace: More than a quarter
of children ages 5 to 14 are working
Espoir Congo’s contribution to the solution 202
 260
We built and run a primary and a secondary
school, and a tailoring training center.
We provide scholarships for students who desire
to attend university.
Literacy and numeracy classes are held for the
villagers.
Training is provided for the teachers
Vocational training
SDG 5
DR Congo : The challenge
Education in DRCongo (UNICEF Stats 2013) Out of
school rates:
Total children out of school: 11%
Male: 8%
Female: 14%
Urban areas: 7%
Rural areas: 13%
DR Congo : The challenge 202
 260
The primary and secondary schools we
built and run welcome an even number of
girls and boys. Last year’s laureate for the
whole district was a young lady from our
school.
Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution
 202
 2
In our schools there are slightly more girls than boys. We believe
this is because :
Girls are shown respect in our schools and given the same value as
the boys. They don’t feel inferior. Teachers are strictly prohibited
to sexually harass the girls.
We encourage the girls to express themselves and discover their
talents and capacities, and that they can contribute to the
betterment of society. One of our goals is to help the girls find
fulfillment in their lives.
Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution
 202
 2
Fully sponsored literacy classes, home economics
and basic accounting is given to teenage girls who
did not attend school, as well as tailoring
training. Upon graduation, the girls can develop
their own tailoring business from our center,
including manufacturing school uniforms.
SDG 6
DR Congo : The challenge
Dysentery, Typhoid fever, and Cholera kill 1 out of every 6
children in the DRC every year. According to the World
Health Organization, in 2015 alone, there have been over
19,000 cases of cholera in the DRC, and over 70% of victims
were children.
Less than 30% of the Congolese population has access to
clean water, while the country owns half of Africa’s (non-
marine) water resources. Generosity Water tells us that the
lack of access to clean water kills 3.6 millions inhabitants a
year—more than war and AIDS combined.
Espoir Congo’s contribution to the solution
 202
 260
Plans are underway to drill a bore well at
our project site for the village, including
solar pump and water fountains. At the
moment, rain water is collected and
filtered.
We have built toilets and showers for the
schools and the medical centre.
SDG 7
DR Congo : the challenge
.
The DRC has one of the lowest rates of
electrification in the world. Based on 2013 data,
DRC’s national electrification access rate was just
9%, with 1% in rural areas and 19% in urban
areas.
So it is essential to use renewable energy like
solar power to be able to operate and transform
lives.
We installed solar panels both at our schools and the
medical centre to supply needed clean and reliable electricity
To conclude:
When projects are initiated as a direct response to the needs of a
community where the people themselves are enthusiastic about the
projects and are willing to work hard to uplift their communities, they a
have a higher chance of success and sustainability.
We are passionate about changing lives in challenging places giving real
hope for the future through education and empowerment to ensure that
NO FAMILY IS LEFT BEHIND!

Know that there will be challenges so be prepared for setbacks without giving up. Integrity is a priority.
  • 52. How Espoir Congo implements the SDGs DR Congo
  • 53. DR Congo  I am going to talk about the first 7 SDGs and how our work intersects with them. As Rachel pointed out, projects are sometimes a reflection of our own skill set but are more about the needs of the society in which we are working. In this way our projects grow organically as need and response interact.
  • 54. SDG 1
  • 55. DR Congo: The challenge Poverty has worsened in the Republic of Congo since the 1980s and half the country's people now live below the poverty line. This average, however, masks wide geographic and economic inequalities. Most of the country's poor people (64.8 per cent) live in rural areas and women are among the hardest hit by poverty. 
  • 56. DR Congo  We provide education, health-care, and vocational training to the village of Kikimi. Plots of land are made available to the population to grow their own vegetables. A capital amount is given to entrepreneurs to start a micro-business of their choice which is carefully monitored and mentoring is available for those who need it.
  • 60. Starting a computer lab or a shop
  • 61. Or a pharmacy. What ever the micro-business it means people are working their way out of poverty,
  • 62. SDG 2
  • 63. DR Congo: the challenge  7.7 million people face acute hunger - a 30 percent increase over the last year ( the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO))
  • 64. DR Congo  Children can concentrate on their classes much better when they are not hungry. Breakfast and snacks are given to all the children in our schools.
  • 65.
  • 66.
  • 67. A hot meal is served to the vulnerable children in the evenings. Food packages are distributed to the nursing mothers.
  • 68. SDG 3
  • 69. Espoir Congo: The need  Death in childbirth: According to estimates by the World Health Organization (WHO), there were 740 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in 2005 [1]. The DRC is thus one of 17 countries with a maternal mortality ratio higher than 700 in 2005.The DRC is one of the most dangerous countries in which to conceive. Over her lifetime, a Congolese woman faces a one in 24 chance of dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth. The country is one of six that account for half of all deaths from maternal causes globally. In its annual "State of the World's Mothers" report, the charity Save the Children listed the DRC among the 10 worst places in the world to be a mother.
  • 70. Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution We built and run a medical center/maternity where 62 healthy babies were delivered last year with zero neonatal mortality. Women receive pre-and post-natal care and training and a package with baby clothes is offered to the mother at each delivery. Mosquito nets are being used and children are inoculated.
  • 71.
  • 72.
  • 73. Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution (stats from 2016) Medicine distributed 4013  No. tests performed 215 # of people assisted 551 # of orphaned children assisted 103 # of prenatal examinations 98 # of hearing impaired assisted 67 # of seeing impaired assisted 12 # of mentally handicapped assisted 42 # of physically handicapped assisted 14 # of newborns 62 
  • 74. Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution 202  260  We also treated people with malaria, typhoid and conducted 85 ante and post natal classes.
  • 75.
  • 76.
  • 77.
  • 78. SDG 4
  • 79. Education: the challenge 202  260 School enrolment rates are declining. More than 4.4 million children (nearly half the school-age population) are not in school. This number includes 2.5 million girls and 400,000 displaced children. Child labour is commonplace: More than a quarter of children ages 5 to 14 are working
  • 80. Espoir Congo’s contribution to the solution 202  260 We built and run a primary and a secondary school, and a tailoring training center. We provide scholarships for students who desire to attend university. Literacy and numeracy classes are held for the villagers. Training is provided for the teachers
  • 81.
  • 82.
  • 84.
  • 85. SDG 5
  • 86. DR Congo : The challenge Education in DRCongo (UNICEF Stats 2013) Out of school rates: Total children out of school: 11% Male: 8% Female: 14% Urban areas: 7% Rural areas: 13%
  • 87. DR Congo : The challenge 202  260 The primary and secondary schools we built and run welcome an even number of girls and boys. Last year’s laureate for the whole district was a young lady from our school.
  • 88.
  • 89. Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution  202  2 In our schools there are slightly more girls than boys. We believe this is because : Girls are shown respect in our schools and given the same value as the boys. They don’t feel inferior. Teachers are strictly prohibited to sexually harass the girls. We encourage the girls to express themselves and discover their talents and capacities, and that they can contribute to the betterment of society. One of our goals is to help the girls find fulfillment in their lives.
  • 90. Espoir Congo’s Contribution to the solution  202  2 Fully sponsored literacy classes, home economics and basic accounting is given to teenage girls who did not attend school, as well as tailoring training. Upon graduation, the girls can develop their own tailoring business from our center, including manufacturing school uniforms.
  • 91.
  • 92. SDG 6
  • 93. DR Congo : The challenge Dysentery, Typhoid fever, and Cholera kill 1 out of every 6 children in the DRC every year. According to the World Health Organization, in 2015 alone, there have been over 19,000 cases of cholera in the DRC, and over 70% of victims were children. Less than 30% of the Congolese population has access to clean water, while the country owns half of Africa’s (non- marine) water resources. Generosity Water tells us that the lack of access to clean water kills 3.6 millions inhabitants a year—more than war and AIDS combined.
  • 94. Espoir Congo’s contribution to the solution  202  260 Plans are underway to drill a bore well at our project site for the village, including solar pump and water fountains. At the moment, rain water is collected and filtered. We have built toilets and showers for the schools and the medical centre.
  • 95.
  • 96.
  • 97. SDG 7
  • 98. DR Congo : the challenge . The DRC has one of the lowest rates of electrification in the world. Based on 2013 data, DRC’s national electrification access rate was just 9%, with 1% in rural areas and 19% in urban areas. So it is essential to use renewable energy like solar power to be able to operate and transform lives.
  • 99. We installed solar panels both at our schools and the medical centre to supply needed clean and reliable electricity
  • 100. To conclude: When projects are initiated as a direct response to the needs of a community where the people themselves are enthusiastic about the projects and are willing to work hard to uplift their communities, they a have a higher chance of success and sustainability. We are passionate about changing lives in challenging places giving real hope for the future through education and empowerment to ensure that NO FAMILY IS LEFT BEHIND!
