One Incredible Social Mission
The deadliest conflict since World War II. The “rape capital” of the world. The most dangerous place on earth to be a woman.
These three themes have shaped the Congolese narrative for decades. Since war erupted in 1998, over 5.4 million people have died and hundreds of thousands of women and girls have been raped.
Yet there is far more to the Democratic Republic of Congo than bloodshed and sexual violence; there is also unparalleled courage, resilience, and strength. Nowhere is this more evident than in the stories of Congolese women and girls.
Walk The Congo aims to organize a global community supporting Congolese peace and development; and help shift the narrative from death and despair, to strength and solutions.
