Rainbow International Charity is a non-profit organization registered in England and Wales that operates in both London and the Democratic Republic of Congo(DRC) in Africa. We are focused on providing health and opportunities for underprivileged girls, young women and their families in DRC.
The charity was founded in 1996. This was in response to the growing number of girls and young women not attending schools due to financial difficulties. The girl’s exclusion from vital education in the Democratic Republic of Congo gave spark to a movement and programme of supporting girls and their families with their quest to complete basic education.
We hope to provide financial and social support for girls to attend and thrive in primary and secondary school, and perhaps one day our own university. We have several teachers who no longer work but have kindly volunteered to providing support in business training, finance, and support for young women to access higher education and employment opportunities once they complete our programme.
Thanks to the donations received, each year the charity will select several young women to sponsor their education for three terms. In addition, we also work on empowering young women in providing medication for health problems such as menstruation(menstrual difficulties), affected pregnancy, childbirth, babies, and affected children.
Within this broad spectrum of supported health, we also have an objective of preventing disease, disability and of alleviating physical disability where possible.
