Right now we are financing the second in a series of internet cafés in Bukavu, Eastern Congo. Internet access is a catalyst of peace, and the café becomes a HUB for learning, culture and entrepreneurship.

INTERNET ACCESS is a catalyst of
PEACE, through learning, culture and ENTREPRENEURSHIP
By building up internet cafes we want to give people access to internet, both on spot and through hotspots. The Cafe will also offer education for the youth and the adults in the region.
The conditions for starting a business is very difficult. Taxes are very high and services are very limited. Some- times electricity is out eleven days in a month but entre- preneurs still have to pay for the whole month. If they instead use a generator the costs are so high that the customers stop coming.
We want to support the entrepreneurs in congo, motivating them and helping them start up business. Because real change comes from within.
Congo’s got a lot of problems. But food is not what they are reaching for. They need investment. They need the means to develop themselves for a sustainable future.
We believe and hope that these internet cafes will be both profitable and community building. Open access for people in the area is financed by customers on spot and the education program. Our ambition is to create a whole chain of cafes throughout all eastern congo.
