Mandate and Mission

The violence that has affected the Region of the Great Lakes countries in general and in particular DR Congo has seriously affected the Congolese population and more specifically children and women in many aspects of their lives.

Relevant national and international reports have shown that the most vulnerable/conflict-affected population groups in DR Congo are children, youth and women at high risk of sexual exploitation, and long-term patients.



One of the fallout from these conflicts are the recruitment of children associated with armed forces and groups, increases in school dropout rates, forced and early marriages, coupled with the risk of early death due to lack of adequate health infrastructure, increased rates of sexually transmitted disease, mortality and infanticide, and poor people due to lack of access to the fields. and the mentally ill.

The multiple difficulties, repeated wars and harsh conditions experienced in the Democratic Republic of Congo in general and In North Kivu in particular characterized by poverty, precariousness, vulnerability coupled with trauma have left social, psychological and economic consequences that must be solved by the entrepreneurial approach of activities that respond to the opportunities offered to the Democratic Republic of Congo through innumerable resources, especially economic recovery.

At present, there is the emergence of an indescribable poverty situation in single-parent households of military families and large village families that have no source of survival for their families characterized by the dropping out of school of children, food insecurity, marginalization and social exclusion.

Many of these recovery-conscious households have become unavoidable entrepreneurs, and thus initiate makeshift activities that need to be strengthened. It is in a resilience approach that the LDPC, in view of its latest surveys to participate effectively, efficiently, relevantly and effectively, plans to implement a project to support the socio-economic reintegration of vulnerable widowed women from military families in Goma to give hope to these needy families by strengthening female entrepreneurship, which is the only source of survival for these households.
