During InteRed’s 30 years, we have worked tirelessly to change the lives of those who need our help. Much of our work has been centralized in Africa. Our projects may range in focus and location, but one thing remains steadfast: we seek to bring positive change to the lives of people who need it most. In particular, InteRed has worked in the Democratic Republic of Congo since 1997, during which time our educational and social development projects have benefited more than 170,000 children, youth and adults.
We prioritize Africa in our strategic plan. That is why we have developed the Africa Project. We want to grow in Africa, reaching more people in more countries. Our main objective is to expand into the Sahel zone. Starting in Mauritania. For this, we need you. In this first phase we need to guarantee the sustainability of the projects that are already underway. Do you want to know them?
