Because there are so many different needs in the Democratic of Congo, we have tailored our approach to relief through different projects, each aiming to meet a certain need or goal. Below are the different Projects currently organized, funded, and operated by Educate the Congo Project.
The Pig Project
Designed to both mitigate the impact that United States schools, churches and businesses have on the environment, while simultaneously feeding and educating 5 Congolese families at a time, this program has helped to feed hundreds of the Congo’s most socially and economically disadvantaged families.

The Bridge Children of Boma
80 children, all orphans, were found living under a bridge in Boma, Democratic Republic of Congo. The local people raised $500.00 to save 30 of them from a life of poverty, illiteracy, and begging, but 50 more still need our help. We need to raise money to build the shelter and home placement these children need.
You can help by donating, or downloading and printing our brochure about them to lead others to give.
Mamalata Village is a new model to care for the needs of orphaned children in the Congo. Children are raised by Christian parents as opposed to institutions. The village is self-sustaining, rather than dependent on continual support. Completely all-inclusive, it encompasses training, education, family and health care.
You can help by donating monetarily or with donation items such as old electronics and computers.
Clinic, Orphanage, and School in Lukula
Vast amounts of land have been donated in Lukula, Democratic Republic, where a Pig Depot has already been set up. With your help, we can finish the school, orphanage, and clinic we’ve started to build there. Centrally-located, Lukula can serve over 800 surrounding villages with the education and healthcare they so desperately need.
This project needs awareness and monetary donations more than anything.
The Microfinance Initiative was born out the Educate the Congo Project’s desire to help the women of the DRC, who need our help to learn the skills necessary to become self-sufficient. Our goal is to create long-term solutions to poverty through character-based, unsecured loans (no collateral) and typically focus on women, who are typically discriminated against by banks because they cannot own property and therefore have no collateral.
A donation of just $50.00-$100.00 can change a woman’s life forever.
