...in the words of the founder
Focus Congo invests in young people and leaders in Congo, builds partnerships with local grassroots organizations and creates access to resources necessary for survival. Focus Congo promotes a vision for justice and peace in the country.
We show love and appreciation for the people we work with. We are interested in genuine relationships with them and are conscious of discovering and investing in the potential of each individual - regardless of how society views the individual. On the basis of trust and mutual appreciation, we want to empower people to use their potential so that they can act confidently in their own interest.
All our projects and actions are common with people and not only for the people of the Congo. It is important to us that they take their chances into their own hands. We are open to dialogue, criticism, dialogue and accountability because that is the basis for real relationships. We place great value on networking to connect people with each other. Only together can we walk the path to peace in Congo.
We consciously take the time to ask questions and listen to those whose voices are not being heard. We recognize that every Congolese person is an expert in their own reality in which they live every day. We are convinced that we can all learn from each other.
As Christians, we believe that it is ultimately God who brings the change and peace we want to see in Congo. We want to partner in our local efforts with real Christians committed to the spiritual revival and reformation of the Democratic Republic of Congo. We value prayer as a driving force for change in Congo.
