Friends of Congo is expanding our work with our youth partners inside the Congo in two ways: 1. Broadening the connections among youth networks throughout the Congo 2. Strengthening the ties between our youth partners inside Congo with youth throughout the globe
In the spirit of advancing these efforts, we are encouraging each participating university or community to raise funds during Congo Week to support our organizing efforts inside and outside of the Congo. A special awardwill be given to the campus or community that raises the most funds. Click here for more details on the special prize for the winning school or community.
