ELKAP stands for ELECTRICITE POUR KAPANGA, a rural electrification programme launched by the Salvatorians in the Territory of Kapanga in the Democratic Republic of Congo (D.R.C.). Now that it is completed, ELKAP provides more than 45,000 people, half of them children, with access to electricity and helps them improve their life. SOFIA (Salvatorian Office for International Aid) has promoted this project which was co-financed by the European Commission, by the Katanga Province, and by the Salvatorian Fathers.
