Republic of the Congo

Education and employment, especially for the disabled, through the establishment of cooperatives and improvements in the quality of education in the country's schools. These are our main activities in the Republic of Congo, where we have been present since 2011.

AVSI Rep Congo

AVSI has been working in the Republic of Congo since April 2011 and, since then, has led training and work projects for people with disabilities, funded by the European Union, through professional courses, supporting around 50 craft workshops and literacy activities.

In addition, AVSI carries out work to make general improvements in the quality of education through the renovation of school infrastructure, teacher training, teaching basic hygiene to students' families, and increased parent participation.

The value of cooperatives. At the end of 2016, a three-year project was ended that was funded by the European Union to train young people with disabilities and enabled their integration into the world of work through creating cooperatives of tailors, carpenters, upholsterers, hairdressers, bakers and blacksmiths. AVSI has accompanied them along their journey towards economic independence: from the basic elements of work, up to the financial and administrative management of the cooperatives themselves, the true focus of the project.
