Arts & Culture of DRC
All too often the Democratic Republic of Congo is shown only in a negative light. While the population begins to reach 80 million people, what about the art and beauty of this country which matches all of Western Europe in size? We aim to provide a means for art consumers to aid local artists and know who they are supporting by displaying their works through this site and international art galleries. All proceeds go to further support the arts, through supply of training, education, material and tools.
Several of Fair Congo Foundation's initiatives can trace their roots to ongoing women empowerment initiatives in Kenya. Furthering the fair-trade export initiatives of Fair Congo, the Foundation aims to supply it's sister companies (both women owned and operated), Ukweli Jewelry with fair-trade, conflict-free, 'green' gold and Recycle Tribe with sustainably sourced timber. The Fair Congo Foundation helps manage the startup of these initiatives and promote their growth.
