Where We Work: Democratic Republic of Congo
We conducted on-the-ground research in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that’s informing innovative positive youth development there.
Carried out as part of the regional Sub-Saharan African YouthMap initiative, our country assessment offered practical, actionable insight. With input from Congolese youth, employers, educational administrators, and other stakeholders, the assessment analyzed and reported on education, employment, health (especially reproductive health), civic/political participation, gender, and conflict. DRC is also home to several fellows of the Innove4Africa initiative, a YouthActionNet® regional institute, and their social entrepreneurship work has helped to protect the environment and support local farmers.
