In sub-Saharan Africa, 95 million children don't have birth certificates. In #DRC, our partners at the Women Lawyers' Movement are helping Congolese families bring their children into official belonging, one birth certificate at a time.

Did you know #Bukavu, our South Kivu HQ, is a world center of #ArtDeco #architecture? Tour these beautiful Congolese #StreamlineModerne buildings in photos by @Ensapu1, featuring an interview with our own operations manager Valéry Namuto https://t.co/4ozUZ8NSYl https://t.co/yrLXVBYDiA

And speaking of beauty — Bukavu has some of the world's most remarkable architecture, too. https://t.co/fDKjnnmXno

We can confirm: the Congolese people turn the grim reality of the pandemic into a chance to create beauty. Take a moment to read this remarkable story from @NPRGoatsandSoda about the masks of DRC. (And wear your mask!) https://t.co/l2nrGrTIt7

“Some antiquated customs maintain that a woman, a simple homemaker, has no right to any property,” says Congolese attorney Me Aline Bahati. With help from Me Aline and @PanziUSA, that's changing — and 15 women just got the deeds to their own land. https://t.co/QGKRA8qS7M

Big day for my African brothers & sisters - our continent will be declared #polio-free. This is one of the greatest public health achievements, demonstrating that with science & solidarity we can beat viruses & save lives. https://t.co/JhijcErtwM

Prof. Liedtka's research is about #designthinking for social good. That same #humancentered philosophy that informs everything we do at ECI, from grantmaking (collaborative) to the ceilings of our clinics (painted with sky & clouds) https://t.co/4PR2u4xqz1

"Perhaps offering a new model for 21st-century NGOs, #Asili combines big-picture thinking & individual understanding," writes Prof. @jeanneliedtka. "It models a kind of partnership … that puts local communities, rather than funders, at the center." https://t.co/G1HSFHLHT6 https://t.co/OjFoQEIp51 https://t.co/syaMscvTCl
