Don Bosco Orphanage Projects

Democratic Republic of Congo, June 2006

As part of their community development project, Tractabel Engineering, a Belgium company, offered to bring electricity to the Don Bosco orphanage in Goma, in the Demeocrtatic Republic of Congo.

To highlight the benefits that electricity would bring to the 1500 children who reside in the centre, they launched a creative competition amongst the children, with the title “How electricity will change my life.”

Electricity at the centre is sporadic, and the few electrical appliances that are available are very outdated, and hardly ever work.
This series of photographs looks at the children creating their interpretation of this phrase.
