Banro Foundation at the inauguration of the new Coopera community gathering site, in Bukavu - December 9, 2012

Finding a safe, comfortable and well-lighted communal space, outfitted with latrines, for public gatherings, is not easy in a city like Bukavu. Thus, on December 9, 2012, the community of Kadutu in Bukavu and the Banro Foundation celebrated the inauguration of the new Coopera community gathering site. The communal space is finding many uses - for example, it was the local venue for screening public broadcasts of the African Cup Soccer tournament in early 2013.
