Educating Girls and Orphans
The Congolese church leaders want more girls and orphans to attend and complete school. To achieve this, the Phipps Scholarship Fund for Girls was created and scholarships for orphans are accepted by the PCUSA. Also, Dipa dia Nzamba School for Girls and another girls’ school in Mbuji Mayi were funded by Myers Park Presbyterian Church and built by CPC to help develop women leaders. In addition, an After-School English and Computer Program was started for high school girls.  All of these efforts have improved girls’ school attendance and performance but the needs for girls and orphans is still enormous.
