OUR HISTORY

BENENFANCE started like a school child club by a group of Congolese children in response to the emergency in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.In 2005, the founder, Abedi Mapasa Patrick began building an organization dedicated to helping the children when he was 17 year old. He was painting posters, writing poems, presenting radio programs with touching messages about children. He influenced other students in Beni town to create a small but ambitious organization that was exclusively dedicated to ending child exploitation and abuses in schools while 2016 elections campaign. These included Milindi Omari Padoux, AmunazoBintiLutalaChristelle, PalukuMasathiro David, KitumainiKafupi Samson, AiméRamazani, SokiIsesomo, EkaKongolo Roland, Joseph Rudahindwaand several other students, teachers and church members. Together they quickly establish a vision for the new organisation which is to be called Bénévolat pour l’Enfance, Bénenfance in short.

JESUS LOVE for BENENFANCE’s development doesn’t let up as income grows each year and in December 21st 2006 it becomes a registered charity. In 2015, Bénenfance has developed within the framework of an interdependent international network (BENENFANCE INTERNATIONAL). In 2016The network expanded with the opening of a fourth program in Haiti.
