Fullfilling the Mission
While in the DRC we will assist our partners with recovery from decades of war and conflict, building relationships and sharing the hope of Christ through orphan care, widow ministry, and local church outreach. We will hike through the mountains and hills of Bunagana and stay next to Uganda and Congolese refugees in their remote villages.

DR Congo Ministry Partners
The Democratic Republic of the Congo has a harrowing history and the repercussions of which are still being played out today - poor governance, non-existent infrastructure, abject poverty, inter-ethnic conflicts resulting in intermittent warfare, and strife are just some of the challenges that many are still facing. Despite these challenges opportunities for peacemaking and reconciliation is ripe. CIYOTA in the DRC is moving towards peace with its young people, bridging governance and ethnic challenges through the means of education, and the development of character through non-violent social empowerment programs that create opportunities for enterprise and income.
