The Story

Hike for Congo is May 2nd in California and  May 30th in Michigan! We will hike together through the forest and fundraise for our Congo Connect partners in the Democratic Republic of the Congo: Youth for a New Society, a coalition of peace groups in D.R. Congo, and the #Telema peace movement.  

D. R. Congo has been in conflict for over 15 years -over 6 million have died- and the conflict is ongoing.  Learn more about Congo's history and the conflict by watching this short documentary film: www.congojustice.org 

Telema means “Stand Up” in Lingala, a Congolese language. It is a global Congolese movement unfolding both in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and in the Diaspora. Launched in the wake of the January 19, 2015 uprising in the Congo, #Telema aims to support, develop and sustain an organized popular movement in the Congo for peace, justice and human dignity.  http://www.telema.org/ 

Support the peace movement in D.R.Congo ~ Help us reach our goal of $4000 and donate today!  Merci! Thank you!
