Women for Women International has partnered with the RAISE Hope for Congo campaign to kick off the Congo Challenge, a three month program that will work with activists to expand the movement for Congo and familiarize them with the many ways that one can be an advocate for Congo. The Challenge will take place from March through May 2009, and each month will focus on a particular avenue for activism: RAISE Awareness, RAISE Your Voice, and RAISE the Profile. Participants will be given a menu of actions that they can take each month, which will be supplemented with backgrounders, training guides, conference calls, videos and activist profiles.
You can share what you’re doing to take action and make an impact by posting thoughts, photos, and video on the in the Congo Challenge Forum and inspire others to get involved!

Run for Congo Women was created as a grassroots movement to send a message of hope and dignity to women living through this conflict.
