Access to Education Changing Lives for Indigenous Youth in the Congo

This article is about the work of Averty Ndzoyi, a 2015 Mandela Washington Fellowship Alumnus hosted here at the Presidential Precinct, who has committed himself to improving access to education for indigenous communities in his home country, the Republic of Congo. Through his NGO/nonprofit organization Espace Opoko, Averty works on an individual basis to address any mental or physical barrier that might prevent indigenous people from getting to school, no matter how far the journey.
