The English-speaking School of Lubumbashi (TESOL)
TESOL was founded in 1987.  It is a K-8 (some years K-9) school teaching in English, whereas the national language for education in the DRC is French.  TESOL was founded to provide education for the children of missionaries and other persons who preferred to have their children taught in English.  The kinds of families who send their children to TESOL include:
    Business people
    NGO workers
For several years, we have leased buildings on the property belonging to the (now closed) French School.  The French government has decided to sell the land, and we are trying to purchase it.  This would not only allow us to remain in the same location, but also allow us to expand our programming.
