It's GIVING TUESDAY!
GivingTuesday is a national movement to give to charitable causes the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. We want to inspire you to GIVE and to continue your support of our organization’s mission. Every dollar counts! Join us in making a difference and creating new possibilities for women and girls in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
Hero Women Rising aims to improve the conditions in which women and adolescent girls live in South Kivu province, eastern D.R. Congo.
To achieve this end, we use education and technology to amplify women’s voices; teach them to advocate for their rights and for the natural environment; build their economic capacity; and support the development of other community grassroots women’s organizations.
We envision a peaceful and prosperous eastern Congo, where women have equal access to meaningful decision-making at all levels and are empowered to contribute to society according to their own inspiration.
