The Congo Protestant University (Université Protestante au Congo, UPC) in Kinshasa is a state-recognised private university open to students of all confessions. The focus of support for Mission 21 lies in the Faculty of Theology. Mission 21 makes an annual contribution to the library. In addition, talented students from financially weak families from various faculties receive a contribution towards tuition fees. An additional financial contribution goes to the salaries of lecturers in the theological faculty, which helps to combat corruption.
