What Do We Do?

Chickens represent an important source of income and food for the locals. The economy is underdeveloped and majority of households are living in poverty.

Respected veterinarian and project volunteer consultant, Dr Theodore Mwabi, shared his extensive expertise during a well-attended session for training local vaccinators and supervisors in mid-August. this was followed by the first vaccine campaign in 10 villages around Mbuji-Mayi.

Why do we help refugees?​

There was a lot of interest in the vaccination with many people in outlying villages also wanting to know how they could get involved. With this level of interest, our goal is to increase numbers in following vaccination campaigns throughout the year.

The next stage will look at working with the community vaccinators to set up a viable small business; vaccinating chickens and acting as resident village poultry health experts in their community.

Thank you to our partners, Kyeema and PiCCA, with their support we are making a real difference in the lives of community members in the Mbuji-Mayi region.

AusCongo team in field

Our position about people seeking asylum in Australia.

The AusCongo Network was founded by Pastor Constantin Mukendi in the year 2008, after he identified a need for better systems to ensure remittances sent to the Democratic Republic of Congo(DRC) by Congolese people living in Australia. He was inspired by the proverb “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. From this dream AusCongo Network was born.

We are a volunteer organisation dedicated to community development projects that help Congolese community in DRC to alleviate poverty.

ACN is currently working with the Congolese community of Mbuji-Mayi to guide and finance impoverished locals. We have a community centre in the town which consists of six staff members, who run several community development projects. The projects include Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) program that teaches locals on essential business skills and allows them to access micro-finance loans for growing their businesses.

We also support several community group meetings at the centre.

How it all started…​

AusCongo Network is a grass-roots, not-for-profit organisation committed to reducing poverty in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and among Congolese people in Australia. We do this by providing opportunities to have their lives transformed through community development projects designed to build strong and sustainable communities.
