Who we are

The events of wars that embraced the Democratic Republic of Congo, in particular the provinces of North-Kivu and South-Kivu were to the basis of human rights violations of all sorts: murders, systematic depredations of the public property and those belonging to the population, destructions of production’s units, massive displacements of the population, result in a strong deterioration of the socio-economic situation of the population of these provinces.

This situation deprived the women and Congolese young people of the capacity to exploit their talents, their productive natural potentialities, an alarming situation of vulnerability of young people and women in the DRC, this group feeling more difficulties to find a job on the market of work and to benefit from incomes allowing them to live.
