Fourth trip to the Eastern Congo from 17 April to 1 May 2017

The goal of the trip was to establish and anchor both the project and the follow-up project of the cartoon locally. Motivated and committed employees at the grass roots level are essential for the sustainability of the project. The plan was to coordinate the interested parties by exchanging views on how to use the cartoon, rewriting it as a musical as well as providing the attached working model.

Besides the schools of Rumangabo, Rugari, as well as the institutions and free University of Goma, we also had the opportunity to travel to Bukavu on this occasion, where the heads of the Kahuzi-Biega National Park, the Lwiro National Research Centre, CRNS as well as different grass roots environmental organisations were interested in collaborating. In hindsight, we also had a one-off opportunity to ship a helpfully large number of books as cargo to Eastern Congo.

I would like to take the opportunity for a Big Thank You to all those involved for their commitment and their cooperation.
