The winner of this year’s Opus Prize worth US$1 million, Sr. Catherine Mutindi Kivutui, has returned to her ministry in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where she oversees the running of Bon Pasteur (Good Shepherd) Kolwezi, the apostolate she founded in 2012 in Lualaba Province, south of DRC with the objective of ending child labor.

ACI Africa reached out to the member of the religious congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd in an interview to find out the plans she has with the funds she received November 21 at Saint Louis University (SLU) in Missouri, USA.

“The funds will help Bon Pasteur improve the lives and renew the hope of the most vulnerable communities and individuals in Kolwezi,” Sr. Mutindi told ACI Africa Friday, November 29.

“The US$1 million has been factored into the Bon Pasteur program’s strategic finance plan 2018-2022 and it will be used to meet funding gaps in both consolidating as well as expanding Bon Pasteur work in Kolwezi,” Sr. Mutindi added.
