The Förderverein Uni Kinshasa NGO

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), suffers today from a terrible lack of young academics. The average age of the university professors is significantly higher than the low life expectancy, university education will be endangered in the coming years. BEBUC was initiated in 2008 by Prof. Gerhard Bringmann (WĂŒrzburg) and Prof. Virima Mudogo (Kinshasa), who, together with their team, pursued the development of BEBUC with creativity and visionary power. 


In 2009, the NGO Förderverein Uni Kinshasa was initiated to contribute to the rejuvenation and quality improvement of university professors, thus, to alleviate the lack of academic staff. Our NGO is supported by 51 institutions members, 1927 personal members from 58 countries in the world.
