About Us

Revive Congo is a Non-profit organisation founded by Pamela Nyandu and Lakeisha Kayoka in 2012. Our vision is to create and support opportunities to equip young people within the Democratic Republic of Congo to give birth to their true leadership potential.

 

The youth in the DRC make up more than 30% of the population, however, more than seven million children between the ages of 5 and 17 are denied access to education. This unfathomable number is due to factors such as lack of education institutes around the country, poorly trained teachers, and poverty being the most important factor. Since parents cannot afford to send their children to school, this has a major impact on the country as it means that the children of the DRC who are indeed the future, have no qualifications and are ill-equipped, thus denying them the chances of having a better future, and breaking out of the poverty cycle.

 

We believe that lack of funds should not stop young people within the DRC fulfilling their dreams. Thus, we are committed to creating opportunities for young people to learn necessary skills, and be given opportunities to fulfil their future ambitions.

 

Revive Congo aims to: 

 

  • Assist the development of institutions/organisations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Provide vocational training) 

  • Create employment opportunities for our target group 

  • Create volunteering schemes 

  • Collaborate with other organisations to respond to the needs of the youth in the DRC

  • Provide funding opportunities to further academic/business prospects 

 

Revive Congo believe in the power of unity and are passionate about working with organisations that work towards bettering the lives of the Congolese people.

"We believe the youth can embrace who they are,
define their future, and change their destiny. It all starts

with a choice."
