The rural communities that Friends of the Congo works with are located in the former Katanga and Orientale provinces. Our two key local partners are the Association of Villages’ Organization of Self-Development (GOVA in French) and Comite Afro-European.The areas of community development include:
- Fish Farming
- Medicinal plant
- Animal rearing
GOVA has launched a rural consciousness raising campaign grounded in self-sufficiency, self-determination and Pan Africanism. The initiative aims to leverage local learning centers akin to libraries and community radio stations to advance mass rural popular education.
