The world’s newest Batman knows what it takes to be a true superhero. Ben Affleck founded the Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) in 2010, and he’s supporting this cause through our ultimate Batman v Superman experience. We’re excited to feature ECI in a guest post! Here’s what they have to say about their incredible mission and work.
Eastern Congo Initiative envisions an eastern Congo vibrant with abundant opportunities for economic and social development, where a robust civil society can flourish. ECI believes that these local, community-based approaches are the key to creating a successful society in eastern Congo.
Eastern Congo Initiative also believes that public and private partnerships, combined with advocacy that drives public policy change and increased attention, will create new opportunities for the people of eastern Congo.
ECI supports Congolese organizations through direct grants to support local solutions for at-risk youth and former child soldiers, mothers and children, as well survivors of rape and sexual violence.
