COFAPRI was initiated in November 2009 and four years later, on the 29th November 2013, COFAPRI was formally registered with the Bukavu local Ministry of Justice as a local organisation operating throughout South Kivu.

Registration number: JUST. 112/S-KV/ 3922/2013.

On the signed letter of 28th February 2014, COFAPRI was registered with the South Kivu Governor's office.

Registration number: No 01/115/CAB/GOUPRO-SK/2014.

Since April 2016, COFAPRI is also member of South Kivu Civil Society, under registration number BCSC 27/2016

Next steps

Further plans involve registering COFAPRI at the national level, so that the work can gradually be expanded throughout the Democratic Republic of Congo.
