The DRC is living in a situation of very acute poverty and, due to the lack of jobs, young people are abandoned. However, there is a possibility to change this situation through the social and solidarity economy.

The Civic Education Network in Congo (RECIC) intends to promote the country's SSE and advocates for the improvement of the sector. The GSEF organizes meetings for exchanging experiences on a regular basis and supports RECIC to participate in the international meetings of SSE actors.

Mission 

The mission of the Civic Education Network in Congo is to induce democratic culture among the population, to reconcile democracy and the advent of the rule of law in the Democratic Republic of Congo and to promote participative local governance.

RECIC is also affiliated with the International Organization of Participatory Democracy (OIDP).
