Authentix Funds New Chemistry Lab Equipment for Malaika School in the Democratic Republic of Congo
Malaika Foundation is a not-for-profit organization created by Noëlla Coursaris Musunka, a Congolese/Cypriot philanthropist and international fashion model whose home country is the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The foundation’s focus is the Malaika School for Girls in Lubumbashi, DRC. Since 2007, the school has grown to over 400 full time students.
The school had constructed more space for a new chemistry lab and an expanded science curriculum but needed funding to properly outfit the lab with the needed equipment and begin classes. In September 2022, Authentix donated the necessary funds for the needed equipment which included hundreds of high-quality lab glassware, water distillation systems, recirc pumps, electronic instruments, dissection kits, high-powered microscopes, and a host of other high-quality parts and tools needed for students to discover the world of chemistry through hands-on instruction and experimentation.
At a special ceremony held on December 6, 2022, Malaika officially renamed its new chemistry Laboratory the “Authentix Discovery Laboratory.”
