HOPE FOR A BETTER FUTURE
Current Projects In the Congo
In the post conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo we have a large population of orphans and women survivors of the genocide. Young girls and women are often victims of sexual violence and human trafficking.
It is up to us to give them hope for a better future by starting to consider education as a fundamental right and not just an option.
MATUMAINI, which means hope in Swahili, is a safe haven for these young girls. The project objective is to address violence against young girls, raising funds and awareness through education, security and basic resources in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
MWANZO UPYA, which means new beginng in Swahili, is an empowerment program. We provide micro-loans to women so that they can grow their businesses and make more money for their families. Loans start at $50USD and can grow up to a maximum of $400USD. Using a 'Grameen-style' solidarity model women borrow from the program and guarantee the loans of other members.
