Friends of Minzoto is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, EIN 46-5236865,   dedicated to empowering the community of Dungu, Democratic Republic of Congo as it recovers from destruction imposed by the Lord’s Resistance Army and works to build a new and vibrant future.

Friends of Minzoto forms partnerships with local leaders and other aid groups in order to support community-led projects that are key to recovery and development.  We strive to connect the people of Dungu—and thousands of internally displaced people who fled to Dungu from less stable parts of the region—with resources and expertise to increase access to education, improve community health and facilitate economic growth.
