Sisters Katrijn and Goele Geeraert traveled through the Democratic Republic of the Congo for two months and met different youngsters. They want to get to know the youth of Congo better and give an illustration of the life of Congolese youngsters today through those meetings.

One main question is at the basis of this project: we know so much about Congo's past through the tales and testimonies of older generations, but we seldom look forward together with the biggest segment of the Congolese people, the youth of today.

Katrijn and Goele's reportages are published on the MO* MO* wereldblog.
