Hello! Bonjour! Mbote! Oleko!

The Democratic Republic of Congo, a former Belgian colony, is located in the heart of Africa.  HandUp Congo is excited to welcome you to Congo, a nation more diverse than even the greetings in multiple languages above!

Established in 2005, HandUp Congo is an organization of passionate and innovative women committed to making a difference in a country that ranks at the bottom of the United Nations Human Development Index.  You will read stories of amazing folks involved in providing a hand up instead of a handout!


HandUp Congo does not accept donations directly but is pleased to refer donors to like-minded nonprofits.
