The Democratic Republic of the Congo is working to build a stable, trusted, and democratic government after emerging from decades of dictatorship and conflict. Its 2011 elections were widely disputed, and with elections scheduled for 2018, there is a need for greater public awareness surrounding the voting process. Our Congo Demokrasia project built the capacity of local organizations to provide voter education activities that teach citizens about their rights and help them to become informed and active civic participants. A second program, Promoting Increased Civic Engagement in the Lead-up to Elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo (PRICE), built on the success of Congo Demokrasia to focus engagement efforts on women and youth.


Together with our local partners, we are improving health and nutrition, expanding access to education, strengthening climate resiliency, enhancing people’s livelihoods, and ensuring communities are governed more inclusively. In each project, we track our goals, monitor the progress, and evaluate impact.
