Marakujas and visitors
Marakuja is committed to providing opportunities to early career researchers based in the DRC. Conscious of the racialized and gendered inequalities that exist within the NGO, Development and academic sectors that operate in the DRC, Marakuja seeks to adopt a work ethos based on fairness and equity with regards to working conditions, work recognition, and dignity of all of our staff regardless of our origin and early opportunities.
