By the early 1990s, the actions of HELP Congo sparked much media interest, particularly
in France; resulting in many reports and articles.
Through the creation of HELP International, communication outside the Republic of
Congo has increased, both for the general public and the scientific community. Two
films have been made on this project, one in 1999 and the other in 2001; their wide
distribution has bettered the public awareness of our work. More recently, in 2013 FL
Concept made a film about chimpanzees, their diseases, and persons in daily life: Planet
Both films are available on DVD in our shop.
|Aside from media related activities, the members of HELP International undertake
various other actions :
The first step in 2009, with the birth of the Ekhilibres platform. Gathering Kalaweit
Entertainment booths and conferences, particularly within our project zoo partners.
Organization of events: 2005, a gala with former St Etienne, Clermont Ferrand. 2006,
organization with Kalaweit association of exposure to Contact'Art gallery Street July 29
in Paris (Tuileries metro).
Presentations at schools (drawing competition, for example).
Development of community life to increase the number of our members and better
inform and involve them in our activities.
One of our main course of action in the future will be to develop partnerships with
Francophone associations ; working in favor of primates together, to be stronger !
Since 2011, our efforts have intensified, conferences in universities, museums,
bookstores, but also entertainment for children in schools, photo exhibits, and charity
concerts. ... So many ways to promote HELP Congo !
