Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is settled on a huge swath of land in central Africa, rich with mineral resources and a diverse mix of ethnic groups. Unfortunately, this diversity has often caused violent divisions. The most recent conflict, the Second Congo War (1998 – 2003) was the most deadly world conflict since World War II. Disputes range from resources, refugees, land rights, corruption, sexual violence, and prejudice. We work to bolster the nation’s maturing democracy, end ethnic conflict, promote gender equality, and transform the Democratic Republic of the Congo into a peaceful country.
