On Congo’s day of independence, we stand in solidarity with our partners on the ground and the Congolese community all over the world.
Together, we are brothers and sisters.
Be a whistleblower for peace.
This Saturday, on Congo’s 52nd Day of Independence, we are brothers and sisters.
Right now Sean, David and Mario are standing with our partners in Congo to celebrate. They’ve been sharing their journals on the road to the weekend’s festivities and working with local leaders to find solutions .
As they honor this day in Congo, our team in Los Angeles will join the Congolese Community of Southern California in a celebration of solidarity.
On the day of independence, from Culver City to Kivu, let us work toward a Congo free and at peace.
Share our stories, join in celebration, be a whistleblower for peace.
“The women from both programs we funded (sewing and hair) are working together to build businesses with one another. One would be the first salon run by women in the province, maybe even the whole country.”

It is inspiring because I know the powerful effect you each can have on somebody when you are standing in the same room, or coming together for a Summer Thursday. And we are learning slowly how to create a FW fingerprint even when we are not there.
It was in each of us that we found the solutions that we had all been waiting for. We had to get aligned as a team for them to begin coming together
Many of us stepped up.
