Our Story

Our History

Nyantende Foundation is a Canadian non- profit organization founded in 2010 by two students at Queen’s University and a Congolese refugee they met in the Kingston community. To this day the Foundation exists primarily on university campuses with a predominantly student-led volunteer base.

 

The Foundation’s vision is to improve Nyantende from the ground up by taking youth off the streets and enrolling them in local schools. By educating those who cannot afford it we hope to foster greater feelings of empowerment and ambition that will mobilize the community and set them on a path towards their own development.

Nyantende Foundation is a registered Non-Profit Organization in Ontario, Canada and South Kivu, DRC. The foundation is also an associate member of The Great Commission Foundation (TGCF), a federally registered charity in Canada. The Foundation supplements the cost of enrollment for 187 boys and girls at 16 academic institutions, across Nyantende.

 

To ensure accountability, the foundation set up an administrative bureau in Nyantende where three Nyantende locals work to ensure each youth is accounted for on a monthly basis. They provide regular updates and information critical to program development.
