The UCBC Fund
Since its inauguration in 2007, Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo (UCBC) is bringing hope and transformation to the Democratic Republic of Congo through a generation of new leaders trained by our unique model of education. An education that is rigorous, holistic, and service-oriented is delivered each day to nearly 500 deserving young men and women regardless of their financial circumstances.
Like many universities, UCBC relies on generous, external support to deliver high quality education that will shape a generation of transformational leaders. The true costs of a UCBC education are roughly $1600 per student per year. Students are expected to pay, on average, $400 per year (25% of the total costs). That may not sound like much, but UCBC students and their families make tremendous sacrifices to pay the $400. Did you know that the average annual income in Congo is $720 per year?*
Through UCBC we’re not just educating, we are forming women and men who will respond to the needs of their communities and give hope to Congo’s future. Every gift to the UCBC Fund is an investment in the future leaders of Congo!
