How You Can Help

One way to help is to donate money to Raise Hope for Congo. A campaign of the Enough Project, Raise Hope for Congo’s goal is building “a permanent and diverse constituency of activists”, whose goal will be to end the conflict currently occurring in eastern Congo and advocating for the various human rights for all citizens in the Congo (“About the Campaign | RAISE Hope for Congo”).

The conflict refers to the war that’s been going on in the eastern Congo since the 1990s, which has included seriously violating human rights (“The Crisis | RAISE Hope for Congo”). This includes violence occurring against women, as well as the practice of using child soldiers (“The Crisis | RAISE Hope for Congo”).

In trying to build a movement to bring about an end to this conflict, both Raise Hope for Congo and the Enough Project collaborate with local Congolese organizations, as well as both national and local groups in the USA (“About the Campaign | RAISE Hope for Congo”). They plan to first raise awareness about the conflict, and will provide the tools that the activists need in order to educate themselves and their communities about the conflict (“About the Campaign | RAISE Hope for Congo”). Together with the activists, Raise Hope for Congo works to draw more media attention to the conflict occurring in the eastern Congo (“About the Campaign | RAISE Hope for Congo”).
