Who are we
The non-profit organization Aketi is a private initiative of families and friends, with no government support.
We cooperate with the university of Kisangani and with local associations and committees such as the school directions, parent organizations, societé civile, the “association des mamans pour le developpement d’Aketi”. (Amada)
Our supporting partners are 3 professors of the university of Kisangani, the faculty of Science.
They started their project 20 years ago in the Kisangani area, focusing on better nutrition; with more variety; durable agriculture, livestock farming, fishing, rice cultivation, plantations. Together with their students, they do fieldwork and go into the jungle.
Their vision matches the goals we like to accomplish with vzw Aketi.

The professors are helping us to contact and work together with the local authorities and associations.
They have now expanded their field work and expertise to the Aketi Region.
Their help is vital. We share the same goals.
