The Congo Tree is a youth development charity based in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the UK.

At The Congo Tree, we believe in good leadership and great teamwork at all levels in our households, local communities and government. We think that the best way to see significant and lasting positive change is by developing the skills of young people  the next generation of leaders.

The Congo Tree runs the WYLD programme, a training programme in transferable skills: problem-solving, communication, creativity, leadership and concientiousness and entreprenurship. 

Everything we do is facilitated by local teams on the ground, who support our young people through the WYLD training, accompanying them with a year of mentoring and helping them with the social action and enterprise projects they themselves design for their own community.
