Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate the Congolese diaspora through access to quality Congolese education. We believe that studying history is important as it allows us to understand what truly happened in the past, where we are in the present and how we can affect the future of our country and ourselves. We are dedicated to raising patriotism within the extended DR Congo community while supporting the projects and charities making a difference in DR Congo.

“The day will come when history will speak. But it will not be the history which will be taught in Brussels, Paris, Washington or the United Nations…Africa will write its own history and in both north and south it will be a history of glory and dignity.”

Our Vision

Making a change in reclaiming the greatness of Congo.

A future where the Congolese people are empowered by the knowledge of their country’s true history, heritage and culture which enables them to make informed life choices for a better future for themselves and the country. Where Congolese people design and lead projects that benefit and empower other Congolese.

A future where quality education and good work is the key to ending poverty and injustice in the Congo. Where it is recognised that education is a long term investment and solution to the problem. Where education takes place in empowering and safe spaces which are conducive to learning. Where training is locally relevant and leads to self respect. 

A future where every Congolese person is valued and their intrinsic dignity are respected. Where personal growth is recognised as a process that takes time can be supported through mentoring. Where tailored interventions are preferred to mass solutions. Where young people are celebrated for their enthusiasm, creativity and potential.

A future where development celebrates country knowledge and aims to learn from each other. Where country knowledge is weighed equally to that of experts and relied on to respond to the country’s needs and solutions. Where Congolese people are given the financial, material and intellectual resources to create sustainable change that they own.

“We all have the power to change the course of history when the beliefs we are fighting for are right.”

~ Dr Denis Mukwege
