THE FUND FOR CONGOLESE WOMEN

A Democratic Republic of Congo without violence, where women and girls have rights to physical integrity and economic justice; where women participate in all levels of decision-making that affect their lives and communities.
Participation, Transparency, Equality, Efficiency, Confidence,Inclusivity
The Fund For Congolese Women funds small local organizations in the early stages of their conception and we fund grassroots organizations which do not have access to financial support from donors.
brings organizations together to share best practices, experiences and identify effective strategies to address common challenges in our communities. We facilitate knowledge sharing among local groups from different provinces and we bring women closer together creating a bridge in within diverse communities. In doing so, FFC has strengthened the Congolese women’s movement.
We believe & trust in the potential of Congolese women and girls to contribute in the development of our country and in their ability to provide effective solutions for a sustainable change in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
