It's time to poor goodness into Congo!
The vision and heart behind our actions as Focus Congo all started when Pappy, our founder and a Congolese living in the diaspora, travelled back to Congo to reconnect with his family and roots after he was forced to flee due to war. (Read more about his story here).
The Congolese diaspora is 3 – 6 million strong – all living outside the DRC. The diaspora continues to play a major role in the lives of their families who reside in the DRC, mainly by financial support through remittances. We believe there is more that the Congolese diaspora around the world can do to contribute to restoring the dignity of their people, and to lift up the nation. We want to encourage the diaspora to unite in contributing towards the development of the country. As the diaspora, our aim shall be to connect and work together to allow our actions to become a blessing to our motherland.
Wake up, Diaspora and explore the beauty and potential of your homeland!
Do you want to reconnect, maybe even reconcile, with your family and loved ones you left behind years ago? Have you ever wondered what your Congo looks like ever since you left? Do you miss experiencing the Congolese vibes, smells and sounds of life back home? We encourage you to reconnect with your roots. Contact us and plan your next trip with us. We would love to guide and encourage you throughout this journey.
INvest in your country
As Congolese from the diaspora we have had the privilege to be exposed to learning from other cultures and countries. Many of us have had the privilege to receive further education and vocational skills. There is so much we can offer and invest in our people and country back home. As Focus Congo we encourage you to brainstorm with us on how we can make a change together and lift up the Congolese people.
