Success Story: Linkages and Savings for Sustainable Change in DRC (PDF)

In August of 2015, a savings group, called Amani, which means “hope” in Lingala, conducted its first-ever share-out ceremony since its inception 9 months ago.  Amani is among the 60 savings groups that have been initiated in Kinshasa and Lubumbashi in DRC with technical support from LIFT II since October 2014. These groups are a part of the bi-directional referral system that facilitates linkages of HIV, TB and Option B+ clients from NACS facilities to economic strengthening and food security (ESFS) services available in their communities.
