The Catholic School in Kasongo

When in Kasongo in May 2012, I had the opportunity to visit the well-financed Catholic school. The conditions there are much better than the average school in the Congo. It was great to find a place of hope in the eastern Congo.

The tour of the school was with one of my colleagues with the Rule of Law section of the UN. He graduated from that same school, so was in a good position to symbolize the benefits of education (as both a UN lawyer and a law professor).

About This Place…

"This website is dedicated to the many people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have suffered and died."


The writer was a journalist, prosecutor, and Canadian soldier who is now trying to help the people who live in the DR Congo.


The photographs and the commentary here are solely those of the writer and his pet dog named "Bark." The United Nations and MONUSCO have nothing to do with this website.

Similarly, the township of Puskokum in eastern Tennessee is equally not interested.
