I am Albert Juma a Congolese refugee, I was born in D.R.Congo North Kivu Rutshuru district, Ishasha village on 11th 02/1998. In my family of 4 people, I am the second born. I completed both my primary and secondary school in Ishasha Village by 2015. However, I was forced to leave my country due to the war conflict, after completing my senior six later that year. After reaching the refugee camp, we faced many challenges; poverty, unemployment, etc. It is when we got united as youth to start small contribution, where we could sell out a small part of our food received from W.F.P in order to raise money for starting loan and saving activities. I was determined to find innovative ways to contribute to the creation of businesses, it is out of this determination that I have been able to start YOBAC that is working with people to develop innovative ways of empowering youth and women to start sustainable businesses, and and encouraging children to get a quality education.

This is a place for feel the real Africa life and learn many things from them.
I recommend go and meet the school.
I will go back.

Volunteering at YOBAC proved to be an awe-inspiring experience. Given its remote location, I gained an invaluable, firsthand insight into the daily lives of these refugees. Albert and his team were super accommodating, and even went out of their way to make sure I got to the camp safely. The children's boundless energy and joy upon meeting me was heartwarming, as they warmly welcomed me with songs and poems. The work is really flexible, and I even had a chance to attend one of the refugee markets! Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend this project to anyone interested in making a mean
