The program “Refugees on the move”, which was a success in Chad, Central African Republic, Burundi and Burkina Faso, will soon be launched in the DRC.

 

ADD conducted a reconnaissance mission in April in Mole camp, a camp situated in the very north of the Province of Equator, at forty kilometres of Zongo.

 

Mole camp has 17 000 refugees originating from the Central African Republic. Most of them are urban, for the largest part natives of Bangui, and 75% of them are less than 20 years old.

 

Jean Michel Champault, General Delegate of AAD and the Congolese choreographer Fabrice Bwabulamutima, who teaches at the dance department of the National Institute of Arts in Kinshasa (INA) visited the refugee camp.

 

Fabrice Bwabulamutima has been chosen by AAD to lead, together with five artist trainers the programme « Refugees on the move » in the DRC.

 

The Congolese NGO ADSSE was commissioned by the UNHCR to manage the educational, socio-cultural and sports activities (basketball, football, capoeira, cyber cafe, library, music, traditional dancing and theater) in the camp.

 

Jean-Michel Champault and Fabrice Bwabulamutima met with Dr. Kapita, deputy director of ADSSE, while they were visiting Zongo and Molé.
