Where we work

CongoAction works  in the Kivu Province in the east of the Congo and is mainly in the  areas of  Kabare Territory, Birava-Irambira and Bagira-Bukavu. Lake  Kivu plays an important part in the lives of many people who rely on  fishing to meet their daily needs, as does agriculture and  smallholdings.

The population  of these areas is estimated at between 85,000 and 90,000 people. Many of  whom are women, children and the elderly.
