UEFA is a non-profit organisation under Congolese law working to assist marginalised groups and indigenous groups in DRC.
The organization’s objectives include to strengthen the capacity of groups or structures of women who seek their emancipation; to support the organization and structure of groups of indigenous women, supporting the socio-economic position and the legal and cultural status of women in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in particular and in general in Africa. This strengthening is carried about by fighting against their marginalization, inequal treatment and inferiority complex, as well as by promoting and defending the rights of indigenous women and supporting development initiatives in the areas of health, education, economy, crafts and environment.
Women’s groups and indigenous groups such as the Pygmy peoples.
