The best solutions to the world’s hardest problems come from the brilliance of the people who live them.
For the past decade, Eastern Congo Initiative has been working shoulder to shoulder with communities in eastern Congo as they build a future of health, freedom and prosperity for life.
Our partners and programs are community led, community supported, and community sustained.
But there is still more work to be done.
With your help, we can expand our advocacy to leverage international policy changes. We can fund more organizations in the DRC already making an impact in their community. We can provide water and healthcare, through Asili, to more children and families every year.
Your gift ensures the continuation of our work with the Congolese, to build communities they deserve.
