EVENT DATE: Aug 25, 2013
For my 25th birthday, I hope to raise $250 for a grassroots organization in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, that is doing something that is near and dear to my heart.
COFAPRI (Congolese Female Action for Promoting Rights and Development) is a grassroots organization started in Bukavu, DRC by a husband and wife team. The purpose of this organization is "to empower women and girls, educate them about their rights, and to empower them through encouraging income-generating activities such as the rearing of livestock." http://www.asafeworldforwomen.org/partners-in-africa/partners-in-drc/cofapri.html
