Congo Initiative equips the rising generation through transformative education for a flourishing Congo.
Congo Initiative invests in those best positioned to create lasting change and thriving communities. Visionary changemakers develop lasting initiatives to confront Congo’s greatest challenges and ignite human flourishing. Our core catalyst for change is the locally-led L’Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo (UCBC) and its community engagement initiatives, located in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
