Since 2009 the government of the DRC has lost over 5 billion USD from corrupt and opaque mining contracts. This is the result of international mining companies and their representatives preying on a corrupt and mismanaged government and vulnerable populations. During that same period the state’s health, education, security, and legal infrastructures have continued to erode inflicting massive damage to the Congolese people and regional trade, security, and development.
Stand With Congo organizes activist communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the United States, Canada, and Europe to lead the push for transparency in the extractive industries to ensure all such dealings in Congo meet international standards.
