Education is a right for all: this is the theme of the drawing contest organised by the Italian Cooperation in Goma, in the region of North Kivu in the Congo. Among the finalists were also 50 students of the School of Peace "Floribert Bwana", opened by the Community of Sant'Egidio in the refugee camp of Mugunga.

Three winners: Kikandi Kiza and Shukuru Hangi, both 12 years old, and the little Amani Ngenda, 9 years old.

All the children that participated in the contest received a school supplies kit as a prize, so after the summer holidays they will be able to go back to class with everything they need.
