UCEDI: Education is the Key to development

"Millions miss out on basic education in DR Congo."

"We help and raise Awareness in All Fields and take actions in order to stimulate the Development."


UCEDI was founded by Mr. Jean Mayaka, our brother and devoted member of the Congolese Community of Washington Metropolitan, who also honorably served as President of the CCWM, as well as being part of the originators of this organization, while being still one of the most implicated in the community.

In his own words

"Volunteering as President of various Non-profit organizations, or Communities or Associations in the past was supposed to be a short-term commitment, but it became a life-long journey. I'm so fortunate to be able to impact the lives of others, while partnering with some of the most passionate and driven entrepreneurs and life changers on the globe." (J.M.)

What is UCEDI ?

In 2016, Jay Mayaka initiates this non-profit organization and reached out to experts in different fields (Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Project Consultants, Human Resources Managers, Environmentalists, Teachers, Agronomists, Financial & Economic Experts, etc.) for an invitation to join the organization and to work for good causes. A team of College and University Degrees, Professionals, and organizations have found interest in this respectable vision and have joined the management of this organization in order to make a difference.

UCEDI stands for US Congolese Education & Development Initiatives
