Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI)

Founded by Ben Affleck, Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) is an advocacy and grant-making initiative wholly focused on working with and for the people of eastern Congo. We envision an eastern Congo vibrant with abundant opportunities for economic and social development, where a robust civil society can flourish. ECI believes that local, community-based approaches are essential to creating a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo. ECI believes public and private partnerships, combined with advocacy that drives increased attention and public policy change, will create new opportunities for the people of eastern Congo.

Objectives of ELAN’s Partnership

The underlying goal was to establish a dedicated resource which provides buyers and investors of all sizes and from all markets access to critical information to assist them with making informed decisions, lessening barriers to enter the market, and directly manage their connection to exporters and exporting cooperatives.
