The Center to Support Marginalized and Exploited Youth
North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo
In 2007, a group of young Congolese women and men took a $200 donation and the motivation to make a positive difference in the lives of disadvantaged young people, and founded CAMME, the Centre d’Appui en faveur des Mineurs Marginalisés et Exploités.
Working in North Kivu, DRC’s most volatile province, CAMME has provided vocational training, education, medical care, food, and a sense of community to thousands of children for almost 10 years, and is continuing to do so today. We work to help Congo’s children have a future free of exploitation, to maximize their potential, and to empower themselves.
