The River



The Congo River and its tributaries form the backbone of Congolese society–supporting transportation, the economy, farming, energy, and more. Inspired by its importance, this monthly giving community will provide essential sustaining support for ECI and the communities we serve in Congo.

This is a community of dedicated supporters who understand the impact we can make together.



The video below shares the ECI origin story, as told by co-founder Ben Affleck, and how we can all join in changing humanitarian aid for good. Join us.


As thanks for your generous support, you will join our monthly giving communty where you’ll receive:

  • A special welcome gift *

100% of your donation always goes directly to programming and communities in Congo, which can range from the activities in our giving levels to support for farmers, grantee partnerships, and more.
