FPK welcomes sick, abandoned and orphaned children and young people in need of care, in order to offer them free health and socio-cultural care. It is about creating a protected environment for vulnerable children and young people. There are two main areas of intervention of the organization: health area and reception and education area. Currently, there are about 600 children and young people housed in the facility, of whom more than 90 have various disabilities (both physical and intellectual) and 126 children between the ages of 0 and 4. Approximately 15000 visits are made annually to health facilities with a high percentage of hospitalizations. The employees who deal with both the health facility and the reception are doctors, nurses, educators, mamans, physiotherapists and operators and maintainers for a total of about 130 employees who rotate over 24 hours of service. FPK is a member of Hub For Kimbondo, a 2nd level association that coordinates the activities of Western associations and supporters who help the Pediatric Foundation with their volunteers.

FPK will work with the other project partners to define the Capacity Building Toolkit and the structure and operation of the CAMMINI MINIMI network organization. It will therefore have an active role in this new network and specific responsibilities. La Fondation Pédiatrique de Kimbondo will be responsible for the logistics of the Capacity Building Training Course in the DRC and coordinator of the group of Congolese organizations who will participate in the training. Given the experience gained in managing large project budgets, FPK will actively collaborate on the definition of the contents of the Financial Management and Resource Management module.
