Despite travel and security problems in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the local Slow Food convivium organized a series of educational activities in the Province of Nord-Kivu that were enthusiastically received by the local population. See here a few photos from their workshops and educational activities given for children and local fisherman in the region.
