we support social businesses in eastern coingo that are sustainable, valuable to the community and contribute to long term peace
We live and work in Bukavu, South Kivu and use our local knowledge and cultural sensitivity to identify and support those people and opportunities with the potential to create social and economic progress
It's not easy. The security situation is improving but still there is no peace in many parts of Kivu. The infrastructure is boroken and receives little investment, which means the roads are often impassable,
electricity is intermittent or non-existent and health services are very limited. Kivu is also very poor with more than two thirds of the population living on less than $1 per day.
But the people are strong and hard working and amongst them are many social entrepreneurs with good ideas and the capacity and determination needed to move forward
