About Us

Deacon Jim Pittman has been leading a campaign to help children, especially orphaned girls and boys since 2008. His first non-profit, Salisa Bana established a school in Kinshasa, DRC and is currently being operated by the Crosier Fathers and Brothers and days for girls who are located in Congo. The school, Salisa Bana, sits on 35 acres and the staff teaches K-8. for this wonderful non-profit that helps send orphan girls to higher education. In 2020 during the Coronavirus pandemic, as everyone was confined to theirs homes, Deacon Jim started another non-profit, Rev Jims Education Fund. He works tirelessly to raise money to to send orphaned girls to the University of Kinshasa, to continue their education in a country that good care less about orphans, especially girls.

Your donation matters!

The DRC is the poorest country in the world and these brothers and sisters in Christ have little to nothing. The one thing that they do have... is God. We provide them with education, fresh, clean water, food, clothes and other necessities that you and I take for granted. Sometimes you and I even take everything for granted. The children of Congo have little or nothing. We are more than just a place, we are a community and a family, a hub of innovation and discovery. Our doors are always open to those who are curious, those who are eager to learn, and those who are ready to make a difference. We believe in the power of connection, the strength of diversity, and the potential of every individual. Examples of some of the cost: Furniture: Bed Frame $100 Mattress $35 Chair $60 Couch $150 Rent: $50 a month Food: $25 a mouth Education at the University: $555 a year and includes transportation. Not a lot of money compared to here and what we have. So why wait? Join our family and donate now to help these amazing children and youth. Your journey starts here, with us.
