Train­ing Cen­ter for Youth  "AAR­IT-Malaki ma Kon­go", for peace, Uni­ver­sal Broth­er­hood and sus­tain­able devel­op­ment in Con­go.

The objec­tive of this cen­ter is to pro­mote Agri­cul­ture and Live­stock, offer­ing the chance to youth to learn about the tech­niques and method­olo­gies of orga­nized labor and the full use of agri­cul­tur­al land.

The project is about edu­cat­ing farm­ers and ranch­ers to adapt the tra­di­tion­al renew­able agri­cul­tur­al tech­nol­o­gy to the mod­ern organ­ic tech­nolo­gies with­out the use of genet­i­cal­ly mod­i­fied seed; teach­ing the prin­ci­ples and ben­e­fits of organ­ic farm­ing, respon­si­ble man­age­ment of resources and breed­ing of live­stock water. Here the chal­lenge is to reach the goal of cul­ti­vat­ing and rais­ing ani­mals nat­u­ral­ly, to get a bet­ter pro­duct, more nutri­tious and less expen­sive.

MALAKI-DEVELOPMENT (Depart­ment of the Cul­tur­al Asso­ci­a­tion MALAKI MA KONGO) whose goal is to find a way for respon­si­ble devel­op­ment in the Con­go and in Africa in gen­er­al; a self-cen­tered and peo­ple-cen­tered devel­op­ment that respects the envi­ron­ment, human rights and the cul­tur­al dimen­sion through­out the whole devel­op­ment projects.

Malaki Devel­op­ment has teamed up with AARIT to search for appro­pri­ate means for peo­ple to believe and hope in the rebirth of life in Con­go.

AARIT is a coop­er­a­tive of Con­gole­se fam­i­lies that cleans up the urban fringe in the swamps of Pointe Noire (the econ­mi­cal cap­i­tal of Con­go) to fight again­st mos­qui­toes, rep­tiles and pests, and recu­per­ate this swamp land to give it to fam­i­lies for agri­cul­tur­al needs.
