“IF LEADERSHIP IS THE KEY, THEN EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO BRINGING UP THESE LEADERS.”
A CONGOLESE SOLUTION
In the midst of this challenging context, and out of an already resilient society, a new liberating and transformative narrative is being written and lived. It begins at the UNIVERSITÉ CHRÉTIENNE BILINGUE DU CONGO (UCBC), where committed Congolese visionaries are developing and nurturing a redemptive community of passionate, young men and women. It continues in forming these women and men as students equipped through professional and formative education at the highest level. It is witnessed in alumni who identify, own, and respond to Congo’s challenges with skill, dedication, excellence, creativity, and Christian hope.

WHAT IT COSTS
Full UCBC tuition is just $2,400 per year. Students and their families make extraordinary sacrifices to pay $400 per year, on average (98% of Congo’s annual per capita gross national income). This leaves a balance of $2,000 required to fully fund each student.
