THE STORY:

I have been supporting V-Day for 10 years now. I am in awe of Eve Ensler and the work V-Day is doing around the world to fight violence against women and girls.

While competing in the triathlon I will be thinking of Eve and the upcoming Opening of the City of Joy in the Congo. Read below to learn more:

V-Day and UNICEF, in partnership with Panzi Foundation, are currently building a special facility for the survivors of sexual violence in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Conceived, created and developed by the women on the ground, the City of Joy in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo will support women survivors of sexual violence to heal and provide them with opportunities to develop their leadership through innovative programming. Through its groundbreaking model, the City of Joy will provide up to 180 women a year with an opportunity to benefit from: group therapy; storytelling; dance; theater; self-defense; comprehensive sexuality education (covering HIV/AIDS, family planning); ecology and horticulture; and economic empowerment.

V-Day has created a City of Joy Gift Registry. I will use the funds raised to help fulfill the registry's list.


I am also planning on traveling to the Opening in February...

Please join me and help create the City of Joy!
