The Republic of the Congo

Between 2004 and 2006, RET’s work in the Republic of the Congo, namely in Impfondo and Lukelela, aimed to assist vulnerable young people displaced by the conflict in the Equateur province of DRC to access formal education.

RET aimed to improve the quality of education through teacher training and life skills to build young people’s resilience. These interventions allowed young people to register in a school or university in DRC or to find employment upon repatriation.

Despite having ceased operations in the Republic of the Congo, RET continues its operations in the neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo (see our Democratic Republic of the Congo page for more details).
