Association for the Support of the Oppressed (via Search for Common Ground)
The Association for the Support of the Oppressed (ASO) is a not-for-profit organization based in Bukavu, South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo. The group aims to promote health, human rights, child welfare, civic education, and social values, in addition to seeking the transformation and peaceful resolution of conflicts. Recent initiatives have sought to confront unemployment and poverty, juvenile delinquency, and illiteracy.
A 2010 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported education and literacy, allowing thirty students to attend school for two years.
Search for Common Ground served as the fiscal sponsor for this grant.
