Program 1

Sons of Congo

Sons of Congo is a men’s mentorship program which aims to create a social change movement for the protection of Congolese women. It does so in a unique way — by tackling the root cause of the violence against them: the mindset of the perpetrators.

Sons of Congo is a comprehensive approach to educating men about their roles as protectors and builders of their communities and country, focusing not on preaching but on opening a conversation about typically taboo subjects — such as sexual violence — in an engaging and acceptable way.
