The Democratic Republic of Congo is a country rich in natural resources that has been plagued with issues like Ebola, ethnic conflict, access to contraceptives, and poverty. As a young country, with 41% of its population under the age of 15, there is a huge opportunity to influence future generations through education. However, 3.5 million primary school aged children are not in school, and 44% of those who do attend start late. Addressing this need in gap between need and access to education is a major opportunity for leverage in supporting the people of the country’s long-term success.
The Emmanuel Mudiay Foundation supports educational and support programs for orphans, vulnerable children, and single mothers in the Congo. Each year, programs supported by the Emmanuel Mudiay Foundation benefit hundreds of youth and single mothers with enriching educational activities, trainings, medical services, and other basic aid.
