Congo Rising Welcomes You
We are preparing for the future by powering the imagination (arts, literacy, film) and by powering agriculture and entrepreneurships.
What we are Doing
Building the Cinema Industry
Establishing power sources
There were cinemas in the Congo in the 1980s, but all have failed. We are building affordable cinemas, open air and enclosed, so that the Congolese can share their own stories
We work with pioneering filmmakers in the DR-Congo to restore cinema to the country. (It was lost thirty years ago.)
We use film and the arts to catalyze educational outreach.
The equipment we have purchased is shared by numerous nascent filmmakers in the Congo. This is consistent with our goals to empower teams, not individuals.
There are no rich countries which are poor in energy. We facilitate building solar power grids.
