“IF LEADERSHIP IS THE KEY, THEN EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO BRINGING UP THESE LEADERS."
- UCBC founder David Kasali
Rather than investing in short-term projects like many NGOs, we are investing in people. Our solution for a brighter Congo is instilling in our students an innovative spirit and a passion for their community.

What are UCBC Applied Science alumni doing to transform Congo?

UCBC's Integrated Research Institute launched its Sharing the Land program in 2015. Sharing the Land is addressing land conflicts by mapping land claims using innovative technology. It has impacted over 4,500 households and their model is expected to benefit 1 million Congolese.
How your gift makes a difference
Frequently Asked Questions
How is my monthly donation used?
Your donation will be used to provide students in the Democratic Republic of Congo a cutting-edge, hands-on education in engineering. Due to poor educational funding and widespread poverty in Congo, educational institutions are understaffed and lack essential resources. Your contribution will grant students access to essential resources such as internet and enable UCBC to offer hands-on laboratory training and implement an evidence-based curriculum.
How can I pay?
You can arrange your regular monthly donation to be charged to your credit or debit card (Visa, Discover, American Express, or Mastercard) or through bank withdrawal.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes! All donations are tax deductible. You will receive an annual tax receipt from one of our US partners, United World Mission.
Why is my donation through United World Mission?
The UCBC Applied Science Fund is hosted by United World Mission (UWM). UWM is a Christian organization and is one of the US-based partners with UCBC. We are fundraising through UWM because of their record of sound financial management, tax-exempt charity status, and their commitment to UCBC's programs. After a small administrative fee, all the donated funds will be used to train innovative alumni through UCBC's Applied Science department.
