The MuanJadi Organization was created in 2009 by Sandra Bea, an alumni of the Ecole Conventionnée Catholique MuanJadi , with the hope of helping young D.R.C. girls receive a high school education.
As an alumna, I have seen my classmates get married off at the early age of 14, before they even have a chance to finish high school. For many parents, marrying off their daughters constitutes a source of revenue in a country where people live with less than $1.00 USD a day with a GDP per Capita of $300 USD. (CIA 2009)
