Women are the heart of Congolese society. They are the heads of their families, are responsible for household duties, and are constantly trying to keep their heads above water. This mainly concerns single women.
Mwasi Makasi is Lingala (Congolese language) for strong woman. The Mwasi Makasi Foundation joins the powers of everyone that wants to help to improve the living conditions for women in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Mwasi Makasi is a non-profit organization without political or religious affiliations.
