In response to the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in North Kivu and Ituri provinces, we have created a special giving opportunity for you to contribute toward meeting some of the needs facing our community as a result of this situation.
The Next 500 Future Leaders of Congo
Over the next four years, invest in developing the next 500 transformational leaders who will be taught and mentored at the Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo (UCBC) – young adults equipped to identify, own, and shape a new narrative for 21st century Democratic Republic of Congo.
Where Most Needed
These gifts will provide an opportunity to meet the needs of CI’s programs and institutions on a where most needed basis.
Other Programs & Institutions
While Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo (UCBC) remains central to Congo Initiative’s vision and mission, our other programs play a crucial role in serving the local community and provide opportunities for children, women, and men throughout Congolese society to participate in transformation. By making a gift, you help bring about change throughout communities in eastern Congo and join our passionate CI staff in serving hundreds of people throughout the year.
All of our local (Congolese) staff in Beni are paid through our general operating budget, funded by gifts to UCBC and our Centers. Many of our international staff raise financial support from their personal networks in the U.S. and elsewhere in order to maximize the amount of giving to CI that can go directly to our programs and local staff in Beni.
