We believe the solutions to Congo’s problems come from those living within them. Together we are investing in Congolese visionaries and building a coalition to end our world’s deadliest war.
His story birthed our symbol. It was shared across the world with readers who wrote back asking – what do we do?
We have not been silent since.
With no home, no office and no plan – we began with $5 and a dream worth our everything. We pulled desks from dumpsters, put them in a garage, and launched a campaign toward peace in Congo.
Most called it impossible. In three years we have invested in 8 Congolese visionaries and built a coalition of 35 Congressman, 16 Senators, 200 retailers and over 50,000 whistleblowers.
We won’t stop until we see the end to the deadliest war of our time.
