Congo has a very poor infrastructure with only 2,250 km of paved highway on a total land area of 2,345,409 km2. Societal development typically follows the road, connecting otherwise isolated communities to the rest of the world. Once a road is constructed, commercial activity and domestic settlement typically follow shortly leading to economic growth and increased welfare. Green House DRC is constructing roads to connect Congo’s fertile but isolated farmland to the rest of civilization and boost regional development. The first road-construction project in Bas-Congo was immediately met with enthusiasm from the local population who are now helping to build the road voluntarily. This synergy with the local population nicely illustrates the creed of Green House DRC and the Strain Hunters Foundation, which is to ‘help people help themselves’.
