In the Democratic Republic of Congo, women and girls of all ages are still suffering from gender based violence. They are terrorized by the use of sex and rape, and the violence they are experiencing is extensive and is impacting society around them. 57% of women in the Democratic Republic of Congo have no formal education, and on average, women care for 4 children. The conditions they are living with make it nearly impossible to be able to provide for their children and family, and the hardships they encounter prove to be negatively impacting their society and daily lives immensely. We are hoping to help raise money for Women for Women, an organization and learning program which supports marginalized women to help save money, improve well being, and influence decisions in their home and community. This program helps bring women together in a safe space to learn life, business, and vocational skills. Women increase their ability to earn an income, as well as discovering their legal rights, and knowledge about health and nutrition. The result creates stronger families, stronger women, and stronger communities. After graduating the program, women have reported positive changes in four key areas, including earning and saving money, developing health and well being, influencing decisions in the home and community, and creating and connecting to networks to support for advocacy. Women for Women has helped the average personal earnings of women affected from the conditions in the DRC raise from $1.46 to $3.29 per day. In addition to that, 80 percent of participants report practicing family planning at graduation of the program, compared to the 1 percent at enrollment. We are hoping to raise $20,000 to help support these women in the Congo, and contribute towards giving them the proper education and financial stability that they deserve. Any amount of donation-even $5-could be extremely helpful!
