The health centre, maternity home and school of San Fidele in the village of Kindu-Mowa is located 135 km from Kinshasa in the Kisangulu territory, Central province of D.R.Congo. The health and education mission is run by the Diocese of Kisantu. This area of the country has no access to the electricity grid, no asphalted roads, and no water distribution/sanitation.
To reach this village you have to travel 4 hours on a dirt road, and during the rainy season the road is almost impassable, isolating this community. The arrival of energy to the community will facilitate its development.

The lack of electricity prevented the proper functioning and service of the health and maternity centre as well as the primary and secondary school. Thanks to the installed solar plant, the health and maternity centre, primary and secondary school, teachers' and nurses' houses, and the community of the diocese have electricity and light 24/7.
As can be seen in the photos of the primary and secondary school, the construction of the building is not finished. The EKI Foundation continues to seek funding for the completion of the building and the construction of latrines for the pupils.
