On February 15th 2017, Espace Opoko staged a meeting with The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA), an evangelical Protestant denomination within Christianity. The meeting between the two non-profit organizations was to discuss the beginning of a new partnership in three distinctive categories:
- The creation of multiple literacy centers in Lékoumou, a department of the Republic of Congo – These proposed centers will teach reading and writing skills to the indigenous population in the hope they can more easily fit into society and to have the necessary skills to make for a better life.
- The launch of “Bon Samaritain”, which translated means “Good Samaritan”, across the department of Lékoumou – Bon Samaritain is a program designed to raise the awareness of HIV. This program, currently in existence in others departments of the Republic of Congo, is comprised of several modules for children, adults, and families.
- The creation of activities that will generate revenue for groups of indigenous families who are enrolled in the literacy programs
All meetings are part of the strategic advancement for the 2017 Espace Opoko program.
