History of Astronism in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Astronism is not recognised as a religion in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as of December 2020. Despite this, the Astronist Institution has few concerns regarding the religious freedoms of Astronists in the DRC due to their positive track record on the issue of religious liberty.

Data sources from within The Institution have concluded estimates of the number of Astronists in the DRC as at around 15,000 people. An important issue for Astronists in French-speaking countries is the lack of accurately translated Astronist content as of 2020. Work within Astronism.org is taking place with the aim of increasing the levels of accurate translations of Astronist content into French and other languages.
