The events that disturbed the CAR in recent years have pushed many people to flee the country and seek refuge in the DRC, especially in Equateur, a province on the CAR-DRC border.

Foreign and uprooted, refugee children are often confronted with problems related to nutrition and health, as well as education and protection. It must be emphasized that most of these children, far away from their homes and villages, find themselves deprived of schooling.

Les événements qui agitent la RCA depuis quelques années ont poussés beaucoup de personnes à fuir le pays pour se réfugier en RDC, dans une province voisine de la RCA : l’Equateur.

Etrangers et déracinés, les enfants y sont souvent confrontés à des problématiques liées d’une part à la nutrition et à la santé mais aussi d’autre part à l’éducation et à la protection. Il ne faut pas oublier que la plupart de ces enfants, puisque loin de leurs maisons et de leurs villages, se retrouvent privés d’école.
