Community Based Organizations
In the face of unimaginable hardship, several community-based organizations (CBOs) are working to serve the Congolese people and move the region toward a healthier and more prosperous future.
ECI is proud to showcase the important work being done by CBOs across eastern Congo. These organizations and their work embody the ingenuity and ambition of the Congolese people as they strive to make a difference in their own communities.
CBO Landscape Analysis
In 2011, with the support of USAID, Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) conducted an unprecedented landscape analysis of CBOs across Maniema, North Kivu, Orientale, and South Kivu provinces. The result is a first- time report that gives policy leaders, investors, and analysts much-needed insight into the workings and nature of work being done to create a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo. This report is not a complete survey of all CBOs in eastern DRC; however, it profiles organizations engaged in particularly interesting and/or important work.
As a result of the Landscape Analysis, ECI has created an online database of CBOs in eastern Congo.
