DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO

Exceptional natural resources, including minerals such as cobalt and copper, hydropower potential, significant farming land, immense biodiversity, and the world’s second-largest rainforest are all part of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Unfortunately, most people in DRC have not benefited from this wealth; actually, it’s quite the contrary.
Being a country full of natural resources, the DRC has been on the receiving side of exploitation for most of their recent history. The Congo war, ongoing civil wars, political disruption and upheaval, instability and authoritarian rule have led to a grave, ongoing humanitarian crisis.

The DRC stands now among the five poorest nations in the world. In 2022, nearly 62% of Congolese, around 60 million people, lived on less than $2.15 a day. This despite its wealth of natural resources.

"The human rights situation across the Democratic Republic of Congo remains dire, with internal conflicts and poor governance contributing to a severe food crisis and the internal displacement of 5.8 million people, more than anywhere else in Africa. Over 100 armed groups are active in eastern Congo, and the imposition of martial law in North Kivu and Ituri provinces has facilitated abuses by government security forces. Armed groups and often abusive security forces continue to carry out massacres, abductions, rape and sexual violence, recruitment of children, and other attacks on civilians with near total impunity."

- Human Rights Watch (HRW)

"In addition, due to farming activities being disrupted by relentless conflict and continuous displacement, an estimated 26.4 million people were food insecure across the DRC, making it the most food insecure country in the world." 

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)

WHO WE ARE

Crown Stewardship Institute in Democratic Republic of Congo (CSI DRC) is a registered non-profit organization based in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

We serve in local Congolese communities teaching conservational farming through Foundation for Farming (FfF) and Biblical Stewardship through Crown materials including the African Money Map and God Provides Movies.

Through these methods, we spread the eternal hope of the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Using these methods, we teach the community how to be good stewards of their land, money and all their resources in such a way that honors God, becomes profitable and provides self-sustainability.

CSI DRC was founded in the Democratic Republic in Congo by Mobali Namuhindura in 2023. Since completing the FfF and Money Map training, Mobali has been relentless about helping and training others. His passion and love for the DRC led him to establish the CSI DRC where he seeks to help communities that have been disrupted by years of civil war, poverty, and hunger and aims to equip them to return to security, stability and hope.

WHAT WE DO

Conservational Agriculture through Foundation for Farming methods:

Participants learn the minimal requirements to become self-sufficient and generate surplus from their land. With these practices farmers escape poverty, have healthy diets, improve the environment and generate enough income to build a better future for themselves and their families.

FfF's training is based on a holistic, biblical, character-based approach that relies on personal transformation to achieve lasting behavior modifications and results. Farmers learn to return to a circular economy as faithful stewards of nature that unlocks productivity, sustainability and profitability. These farming methods can be followed by anyone who wishes to learn them and implement them, there is no need to have previous agricultural experience or have large equipment or large fields.

 

Biblical Stewardship through CROWN’s African Money Map and God Provides Film Series,

Participants learn that God is the rightful owner of everything we have, our land, our family, our possessions, our country etc. surrendering the control and ownership of what we have and obeying God’s principles bring forth a heart transformation that will produce great fruit.
