About Our Foundation

Welcome to the DR Congo Education Foundation

We believe that the value of knowing ones history is a moral responsibility that liberalises the mind, deepens the sympathies with fellow compatriots and thus fortifying the will that enables us to grow as a people. Access to education is, therefore, the key needed to unlock the truths of Congo’s history, heritage and culture.

Why Choose DRCEF?

Learning about history provides a sense of identity which is one of the main reasons that history is still taught in schools around the world. 

Being able to understand your country, where you come from, how your people evolved and developed over time gives a sense of belonging. When an individual takes it upon themselves to dive deep into their own peoples history or family’s history, they can begin to understand how and why different group behaviours are form through customs and culture and also a sense of pride in any significant achievements ie: the Congolese contribution to modern civilisation, art, music, sports etc.

Self Development

The study of history is a non-negotiable aspect of better citizenship. This is one of the main reasons why it is taught as a part of school curricula. 

For example; If a foreigner wants to become a citizen, most countries have what’s called a naturalisation process.

In the UK for example, their process is that you need to prove that you understand English, Welsh or Scottish (depending on where you live in the UK) and you need to pass, what’s called the Life in the UK test which asks questions about the UK laws, legal system and other historical details of life in the UK.

Community

We truly believe in the power of coltivating a good community as a means to aid learning. Being able to connect with other Congolese natives and building a community of people with a shared background is something we take very seriously.

We therefore ensure we provide opportunities for people to connect with one another via trips, social visits and social media groups. 

Alumni

The DRCEF is excited to announce the arrival of the DRCEF Alumni.

This is a new community platform for DRCEF’s alumni. It is a place where we celebrate our Alumni and the only place online where you can find, and connect with, all DRCEF alumni.

All alumni are automatically enrolled!

Family Support

Families are an immediate support system, it is therefore critical to consider their involvement when it comes to learning and aspirations. We work to encourage family support and engagement in education.

Mentoring

We recognise that simply providing access to resources is not enough. Mentoring can help improve attendance and motivation and thus maximising their learning.

Empowering Spaces

We recognise that poor infrastructure and unsafe environments often act as direct barriers for education. We deliver projects, where possible in places that make everyone feel comfortable and safe

DRCEF is a charitable organisation that relies on the generous donations of our Trustee as well as our supporters.
