About this Branch

IDEAS For DRC was founded in 2015 as the first foray of IDEAS For Us in the Democratic Republic of The Congo. The work here has been lead by our branch in Bukavu and our founding branch leader, Daniel Mastaki. Tree plantings, solar lanterns, solar water pump electrification, and trash-clean-ups have all been key to the building momentum needed in the DRC to advance sustainability.  

Environmental Challenges

  • Toxic waste pollution
  • Loss of habitats due to overpopulation
  • Deforestation
  • Lack of clean energy

Members of our  IDEAS For DRC branch have won many Solutions Fund Microgrants and utilized the funding and mentorship to advance numerous SDG projects. Reforestation campaigns have been numerous and we are excited to bring together the social, economic, and environmental nexus for many of these projects by creating inclusive, ecological jobs for people in rural communities.
