TrustAfrica has just released a documentary about its Enhancing Women's Dignity project, which seeks to stop gender violence and increase women's political participation in seven French-speaking countries in Central and West Africa.

Much of the film was shot on location in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where it documents activities led by our partner and grantee, HEAL Africa. Thanks to your generous support, we were able to augment our initial grant to HEAL Africa with an additional $5,000 in private contributions.

We invite you to watch this video and meet some of the remarkable women and communities whom your donations are assisting. We thank you again for your support.
