The Belewete primary practice school located in Dungu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, will soon be given a rejuvenation treatment.

This project of Terre Sans Frontières to rebuild eight classrooms and the rehabilitation of five others is clone in collaboration with the Augustinian Fathers and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Many sections of this school of 877 pupils are indeed in a pitiful and advanced stage of disrepair and present a real danger to pupils and teachers alike. The decay is due to the voracious activity of the termites that abound in the area. They easily bore their way through the earthen walls put up decades ago, to eat the wood of the trusses that support the roof. Much cement will be needed to block the way to the termites.
