About Us

Congo Initiative (CI) is a multi-faceted intervention in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo with the specific aim of developing a new generation of ethical leaders to model and lead social, spiritual, and economic change in all sectors of Congolese society. At the heart of CI’s work is our core catalyst of change: Congo Initiative – Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo (CI-UCBC). CI-UCBC and its community-driven initiatives equip changemakers and model transformation by holistically renewing communities and promoting systemic justice.

CI-USA invests in Congo’s future by equipping CI-UCBC to drive change and deliver transformational impact. We focus on the following five areas where CI-UCBC has demonstrated proven impact: equipping leaders through transformative education and leadership development; breaking barriers for women and children; improving livelihoods through basic education and economic opportunity; promoting peace and justice by resolving land conflict and defending those wrongfully-imprisoned; healing through grief and trauma counseling.

Congo Initiative USA is the resource and partnership development arm of CI in the United States. Building deep and lasting relationships that lead to increasing financial investment from individual donors, foundations, and church partners is the essence of CI-USA’s mission.
