“My name is Milor Fuma Jonas, a student at DNS Mbankana. The training at the college aims to train young men and women with different backgrounds to become qualified teachers as well as development agents to improve primary education in rural schools in DR Congo. At the end of my training at DNS Mbankana, I was able to teach in all the primary classes and contributed to the integral development of rural communities. I initiated students to establish vegetable gardens so that they can eat vegetables produced by themselves. I will continue to support Congolese youth in vulnerable communities to work as development agents for their communities.
Studying at DNS Mbankama helped me to develop greatly for the benefit of Congolese rural children. My language skills and pedagogical experiences that I obtained through community actions will help me to improve the situations for vulnerable children living in rural communities so that they can have a better future,” says Milor Fuma Jonas,DNS Mbankana, HPP Congo.
