Challenge

According to the Congolese Ministry of Public Health, An estimated fourteen million of Congolese population live with a disability and they are the most marginalized group. Unfortunately, the state has not taken any measures that might help them maintain a sustainable level of income and prevent them from sliding into poverty, and Disabled People Organizations (DPOs) lack sufficient capacity to participate in advocacy and decision-making process regarding the implementation of CRPD at all levels

Solution

The KFF Entrepreneur Challenge implementing partners will run a 3-months of non-residential and -in-person entrepreneurial mentorship program to improve the entrepreneurial and management skills of young Congolese with disabilities in order to help them launch or expand their business.

Long-Term Impact

Young Congolese with disabilities will receive ongoing business support alongside with financial award they need to launch or expand their small business and will have access to the KFF Marketplace.
