Protection International (PI) began working in the DRC in 2004. The country work initially began through regular missions in which PI staff conducted security trainings with civil society groups. During the early period of PI’s presence in the DRC, the organisation developed strong relations with civil society in the East, training local activists. In 2009, a Protection Desk was established.

PI has increasingly become an important voice within Congolese civil society in North and South Kivu specialised on security management for human rights defenders.

The organisation currently has offices in both Bukavu and Goma.
