#CongoExcellence’s vision is to be a facilitative platform for young Congolese around the world to elevate the national economic growth and standard of living, whilst simultaneously sustaining this growth for future generations to come.
#CongoExcellence’s work is guided by FUBUTU – For Us, By Us, Through Us. #CongoExcellence creates spaces where young Congolese can create and implement strategies that offer access and opportunities For Us Congolese. These strategies will aim at serving the majority of Congolese in order to create value, impact, change and transformation for society. By Us means that Congolese recognize their individual agency, capacity and capability in creating value, impacting, changing and transforming the Congo. Finally, Through Us appeals to the factor of unity amongst the Congolese community, and reflects the importance of cooperation amongst us, and recognizes that we as Congolese are partners in development and not competitors in opportunity.
This is because #CongoExcellence recognizes the potential of today’s youth, regardless of their socio-economic status and geographic location, in positively transforming societies by being agents of change once given the right tools and space to do so. Through our multifaceted approach of consulting, educating, connecting and empowering, we accompany young Congolese in redefining capital, social and environmental values for Congo’s current and next generations.
Additionally, we believe that in order for socio-economic development to be truly sustainable we have to begin to recognize and to believe in Congo’s excellence. Therefore, we also dedicate our work to changing the narrative of the Congo, by showcasing Congolese stories which mainstream media rarely shares.
