The UbiPharm Fondation has reaffirmed its commitment to education in the Congo by officially handing over a new school building to Collège Nkouka-Boussoumbou in Madibou, in Brazzaville's eighth arrondissement. The ceremony, which took place on December 4, 2023, was honored by the presence of the Minister of Preschool, Primary and Secondary Education and Literacy, Jean-Luc MOUTHOU.
The Minister expressed his gratitude, underlining the importance of responding to the Head of State's educational vision. "It's a tremendous feeling of joy to be part of the Head of State's vision by offering Congolese schoolchildren school infrastructure as close as possible to their homes. This is our commitment and our priesthood", declared Minister Jean-Luc Mouthou.
A modernized education building
The refurbished building comprises three classrooms and a modern administrative block including the principal's office, the director of studies' office, the bursar's office, the teachers' lounge, the secretariat, the general supervisor's office and modern toilets. Renovation work has also been carried out on the student toilets.

A History of Ongoing Commitment
This is UbiPharm Fondation’s third intervention in the Congo's education sub-sector. In 2014, the Lycée Thomas-Sankara in Brazzaville benefited from a fully-equipped classroom and multi-purpose hall. In 2021, the Loussala school in Pointe-Noire also received a three-classroom building thanks to this Foundation.Click on the link to see a video of the Foundation's donation:
