Welcome to the Congolese Youth, Peace and Security Portal
“The time has come to empower Congolese youth as peacebuilders”
ADECOP is a growing network of Congolese youth united around the vision of a cohesive and inclusive society, where everyone feels safe and confident to engage individually or collectively towards a better, productive and sustainable social life.
Congolese youth are neither victims nor perpetrators of the conflicts that have ravaged our country for decades, we firmly believe that they are working as positive actors of change to restore peace.
ADECOP strives to raise the consciousness of youth and promote a better understanding of community organization around issues of peace, democracy and development.
We pursue the vision of a cohesive and inclusive society in which everyone feels safe and able to contribute individually and with others to a better, productive and sustainable social life.
A YOUTH-LED PEACE INITIATIVE
Our dynamic team implements innovative community education and awareness-raising projects, advocacy and lobbying programs, and social empowerment initiatives to empower Congolese youth as positive actors of change.
ADECOP work with various stakeholders to build and sustain partnerships, coalitions and networks for greater impact in promoting the positive role of youth as peace builders and agents of change at the local, national, regional and global levels.
