The Congo Tree: inspiring, equipping and supporting young people in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The Congo Tree is a youth development charity based in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the UK, working with young people who have grown up in situations of conflict. We believe in training young people as the next generation of leaders, so that they can be the ones to change their world. Through our WYLD (World Youth Leadership Development) Programme we aim to inspire young people to see themselves as leaders, equip young people with transferable ‘life’ and leadership skills, and support young people through mentoring, as they step out and get involved creatively in their communities. Since April 2013, we have worked with over 400 young people and have amazing stories of how they have believed that they can #bepartofthestory and seen positive impact in their lives and the lives of many others around them.
