Who we are
Ian Harvey, a social worker from the UK, who had previously worked in DRC, originally had the vision for the project following observations and conversations with Congolese colleagues some of whom are currently involved in Kimbilio. Ian lives in Lubumbashi and works alongside the Congolese team as Project Manager.
Kimbilio is also fortunate to have a number of part time volunteers who share their skills with the children on a weekly basis. These include an IT teacher, Karate teacher, a trained counsellor and art teachers. The Dean of the Anglican Cathedral provides moral and spiritual support while his wife cooks for the children on a daily basis.
We also welcome local and overseas volunteers to the project for short work placements. Find out more here.
