FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The history of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is a tragic story of a nation that, because of bad luck, bad timing, and most importantly, bad leadership, has never reached its potential. Despite its copious reserves of resources, the Congo has never become a leading nation in the world and it remains a “failed state” to this day. For more information, check out this video or this one. If you’re at work with no headphones, read this Congo primer.
What does CLI do?
In short, CLI trains young leaders. This is accomplished through an intensive leadership development curriculum called the Leadership Institute. CLI works with talented youth from all fields of study and with different ambitions, changing them from untapped resources into engines for change. The result is a cohort of skilled leaders that can spark true development and shatter the colonialism of dependency that cripples the Congo.
But what exactly does the program consist of?
We could tell you, but it's best to show you! Check out My Community, a lesson included in CLI's Leadership Institute!
I know my stuff in this field. Stop the marketing and show me the program.
Sure thing! Just send us an email!
What have you accomplished so far?
We've seen outstanding results from our program! Young leaders are shattering learning goals and taking their leadership training into the community. One example is Joelle, who is currently part of CLI's program and has started a business to support her family!
What makes CLI different than the other organizations?
CLI is unique for several reasons. First, there are very few organizations focused on the situation in the Congo and fewer still with the long- term vision to change the status quo by attacking root causes. CLI places a high value on efficiency and works in ways that represent best practices in the development field today. The model that CLI uses is proven and monitoring and evaluation is an important part of the program design.
