Fact finding mission to the DRC

  At the start of 2016, we went on a fact finding mission to the Congo. It helped us understand exactly where our work would do the most good. Travel was financed personally by everyone on the trip and there was no cost to Passion For Motherland.

Street children chosen as PFM Showcase project for 2016

The conflict in the DRC – and the years of upheaval that followed – left many families uprooted by violence and children, specifically, in a vulnerable position. Large numbers of children found themselves homeless and in desperate need of protection and support. Before the 1990s, the phenomenon of street children was barely noticeable in Kinshasa. The capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly known as Zaïre) is home to more than 10 million and the city continues to grow. The phenomenon of street...

Street Children

In the world

30 million in Africa

With nowhere to live, no shelter

in Kinshasa

Help us house them, today

You can help today!

Giving is easy and can have a profound effect. You are not only saving a child from living on the street, you are also helping educate and train them for a better future. Each of these small, positive changes, will help generate momentum toward a brighter future for the whole of the Congo.


Get involved – Save a life

We live in a world where we don’t think too much about buying a cappuccino for £3 each morning on our way to work. By the way, that’s roughly $4.50, and it is enough to pay for the nutrition of one child living at a Passion For Motherland Shelter for a day. Help us to take these vulnerable children off the streets in Kinshasa! Give them a chance to grow up safely! Join our effort to give them hope!

Every donation helps make a difference

Every pound will make a difference. Every pound will help provide safety, food and healthcare. Help us cultivate a better future for all Congolese. Donate today.

About Passion For Motherland

Learn more about us and our organisation

Founded in 2013, Passion for Motherland aims to raise awareness of the challenges that the Congolese people face overall – and the problems faced by the street children in particular. For 2016/17 our main project is the creation of a safe compound for street children in Kinshasa. Because of the number of volunteers who have helped us in the past – and the great team of trustees and other professionals who donate their time and energy to Passion for Motherland – we will be able to begin construction of our first cost-effective, shelter. We’re aiming to make the shelter as self-sustaining as possible and, once implemented, we will move on to building a second shelter. Alongside the main shelter, we will be pursuing additional empowering projects. Our plan is to replicate this success across Kinshasa and, ultimately, the whole country. Give the street children of Kinshasa a chance by making a donation today.


The Democratic Republic of Congo is a country of tremendous potential. As the troubles of the past give way to the possibilities of the future, we have the chance to make a real difference.
