OUR WHY

Everything we do is for the glory of Jesus Christ. We are His faithful servants believing that through Him we can give a voice to the voiceless and hope to the hopeless. We aim to inspire and to serve the people of the Congo.

 

We at KFC believe health and education are the driving force behind change in the DRC. These two areas are key to providing the next generation an opportunity to rise out of poverty and have a promising future. We aim to equip the next generation by focusing on providing clean drinking water, an exceptional school, computer center, and a discipleship program- the Legacy Project.
