You can help today!

About Passion For Motherland
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.Get more information
