This International Women’s Day, invest in the girls and women of eastern Congo!
$150 / month pays the salary of one of Action Kivu’s sewing trainers. Our trainers, including Rosine, give women and girls like Cozi the opportunity to earn money and change their lives, the lives of their children, and the future of Congo!
“Clearly, more investments are needed. Girls and women are at the heart of development. They are the seeds of growth and the engines of power. Improving the livelihood of girls and women is central to the success of broader development goals, such as reducing poverty and hunger, improving maternal health and increasing overall economic growth and stability. We know that investing in girls and women isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing to do.” –Jill Sheffield, Women Deliver
