Congo Leadership Initiative would not be able to carry out its mission without help from numerous partner organizations, and one of the organizations that has supported CLI from the beginning is Friends of the Congo. FOTC’s mission is to raise the consciousness of the world community on the challenge of the Congo and support Congolese institutions in bringing about a peaceful and lasting change. Their advocacy work is impressive and truly leads the way in raising awareness of the situation in the Congo. Further, they proudly continue the tradition of the Congo’s first president Patrice Lumumba, a man who is an inspiration to Congolese activists even today.
CLI is proud to work alongside Friends of the Congo, and truly feel that our work to develop leaders in Kinshasa complements their comprehensive efforts to raise awareness of the situation that exists throughout the Congo.
