Ongoing conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo have left the nation in a state of extreme poverty with very little stable infrastructure. The eastern regions of the country are particularly volatile, with a notorious reputation for horrific violence against women. We work with internally displaced women who have been most affected by the ongoing conflict, and offer them vocational skills training and direct employment in a safe and happy atmosphere.


Investing in women measurably improves the lives of their families and consequently, their communities. We believe that humankind has allowed violence against women to continue for too long, especially in DRC where sexual violence is epidemic. Our programs reflect the basic premise that when women have equity, nations and the world become more secure. We focus on creating infrastructure within Eastern DRC by educating women, boosting local economy, and promoting a sense of community.

Long-Term Impact

We know that when women are educated, healthy and strong, the entire community echoes with direct benefit. By providing the training and resources, we are directly supporting and promoting leadership for women in their personal and professional lives. These women in turn will use their skills to educate and impact their children, directly changing the trajectory of their lives and their families.
