Action Kivu provides some of the Eastern Congo's victims of violence with the opportunity to rebuild their lives on a foundation of hope, dignity, and economic self-sustenance. Our approach is spearheaded through two programs:
The Kivu Sewing Workshop
In an eight-month program, students, all victims of the Congo's years of devastating conflict, learn to sew, knit and embroider and eventually acquire the skills and capacity to work on their own as seamstresses who can provide for themselves and their families.
Education Assistance for Children
Action Kivu works in partnership with primary schools in Congo to fund the education of vulnerable children affected by the ongoing conflict.
