Taking the #UpForSchool message to DRC school
Laetitia Mundele, another Global Youth Ambassador, and I went in a school named Institut Bompikiliki in Kinshasa suburb. We talked about the #UpForSchool Petition. Everybody signed up – all the students, teachers and people living around the school. In total we collected 820 signatures.
In DRC, every April 30 is National Education Day. At the ministry of foreign affairs, I made a speech about education and also the petition. There were around 500 participants and they all signed #UpForSchool.
