Community Philanthropy in the DRC: Evidence and potential
This study, conducted by the Fund for Congolese Women, focuses on community philanthropy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is based on the observation that the population continues to face multiple precarious situations, but they do not give up. Women, for example, launch resilience initiatives and multiple self-financing strategies among grassroots groups, solidarity mutuals, villages associations and cooperatives.
The objective of the study is to demonstrate the existence or otherwise of a culture of community philanthropy and to formulate potential strategies to establish a model that aligns with, and supports, local realities.
