PEF in the DRC

PEF in the DRC

Brother Pepitho was one of the first recipients of PEF funding in the DRC.  After serving an honourable mission in Uganda, he returned home and faced severe challenges in attempting to secure employment.  He did research in the job market and identified CISCO as a qualification that would result in a good job in Kinshasa.  Through much effort he got good grades which led to CISCO giving him a bursary.  The training school also invited him to be a teacher and while working there, he applied for and got an IT administrator job at the US Embassy.   

He continues to work at these two jobs while furthering his training with CISCO.  He has qualified in three levels and is currently completing his fourth level. He recently travelled to Cameroon for CISCO.

He is grateful that he can feed and provide for his family, pay his tithing and is able to serve as the Executive Secretary for Elder Mbaya, an Area Seventy.
