Fonds pour les Femmes Congolaises (FFC)

The idea of creating a fund for grassroots organizations was born out of a campaign against sexual violence launched in Montreal in 2007 by a diaspora network of Congolese women’s groups. Fonds pour les Femmes Congolaises (FFC) is a non-governmental organization that supports partner organizations with the main focus of promoting and defending the rights of women and girls.  They advocate for women’s right to live free of violence and aim to strengthen the organizational capacity of their network through financial and technical support.
