WHO WE ARE
Established in 2015, Maroy Foundation operates in South Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo, with a primary focus on capacity-building innovative programmes and interventions in education and healthcare delivery, particularly in Bukavu. As of 2023, the Foundation has expanded its educational support to young people and institutions in Europe, particularly England and France. Our approach emphasises collaboration and the enhancement of existing resources, avoiding duplication of efforts.
Team and Expertise
Our dedicated team consists of 19 skilled staff and a dynamic network of volunteers and interns. Leveraging vast expertise and experience in eastern Congo, we prioritise on-the-ground operations. This hands-on approach, grounded in extensive fieldwork and research, enables us to co-create impactful and measurable initiatives that foster sustainable community development.
Diversity and Inclusion
As a proud equal rights employer, Maroy Foundation strictly upholds a non-discriminatory policy based on race, religion, tribal affiliation, sexuality, national origin, gender, age, disability, or genetic information. Our diverse workforce, comprising individuals from various ethnic and kinship backgrounds, collaborates with local, provincial, national, and international partners alongside the communities we serve.
Maroy Foundation, a constitutionally non-political, non-religious, non-profit NGO registered directly in Kinshasa with the National Ministry of Justice, maintains a clear objective of offering targeted support in health services and education.
Maroy Foundation Hospital
A wholly-owned independent subsidiary of Maroy Foundation, Maroy Foundation Hospital operates with the same commitment to professionalism and adherence to policies such as Zero-Tolerance of Poverty Fetishisation, Zero-Tolerance of Corruption, Modern Slavery, Child and Vulnerable Persons Protection, and others.
Governance and Values
Guided by our Constitution, we maintain a zero-tolerance stance on poverty fetishisation and corruption. Our commitment to modern slavery prevention and the protection of children and vulnerable persons aligns with our values of good internal governance, transparency, accountability, professionalism, and sustainability. At Maroy Foundation, we take pride in the relationships of trust we've built within the communities we operate and with our international partners. Our ongoing mission is to deliver incisive support to local citizens, promoting positive and lasting change through our unwavering dedication to excellence and ethical practices.

Our commitment centres on strengthening educational systems through capacity building and delivering top-tier healthcare services. In all our endeavours, we adhere to the highest standards, ensuring excellence in project implementation.
Educational Excellence: A Commitment to Impact
The Foundation collaborates with local underperforming primary schools, partnering closely with Senior Leadership Teams to address critical areas for improvement. Our initiatives include constructing additional classrooms to enhance capacity, conducting teacher training seminars, providing essential materials, establishing libraries, and offering scholarships with free healthcare at Maroy Foundation Hospital, particularly for vulnerable students, often orphans. Notably, 60% of our scholars in the 2022/2023 academic year were girls.
In line with our unwavering commitment to excellence, we implement all projects to the highest standards, meticulously collecting and collating data on the impact of our work. Ethical data collection, secure storage, and appropriate usage are pivotal aspects, underscored by contractual agreements within our programmes. Both electronic and written copies of data are maintained, serving as a vital tool to track progress and assess the achievement of key targets.
Maroy Foundation Hospital: Affordable and Compassionate Healthcare
Maroy Foundation Hospital, our flagship institution, is dedicated to delivering high-quality healthcare at an affordable, subsidised rate. We prioritise genuine compassion from our doctors, nurses, and staff. Administrative costs are the sole charges incurred, as we do not answer to shareholders and so do not retain any profit. Consequently, our healthcare services are more than half the price of other hospitals in Bukavu, ensuring accessibility without compromising quality.
Our medical professionals possess exceptional experience, creating a warm and friendly atmosphere within the hospital. Specialising in maternal, newborn, and child health, as well as sexual and reproductive health, our services extend to general and specialised healthcare, including pediatrics, surgery, dentistry, ophthalmology, dermatology, physiotherapy, and medical imaging.
Equipped with a dedicated radiography center, laboratory, surgery ward, maternity ward, pediatric ward, outpatient clinic, A&E, and Internal Medical Services, Maroy Foundation Hospital provides comprehensive care for diverse needs. From primary and specialty care for adults and children to expert hospital-based services, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the well-being of the community we serve.
