Congo week 19-25 october

The advent of modern technology offers the average person remarkable opportunities to effect change throughout the world with very little effort or sacrifice.

There is a number of ways in which you can participate in this historic effort to facilitate change in the heart of Africa. In the late 1800s, renowned figures such as Mark Twain, Booker T. Washington, George Washington Williams, William Sheppard, Roger Casement, Edmund Morel and many others were found at the side of the Congolese in their fight to heal their land and utilize the resources with which they were blessed for the benefit of the Congolese people. Over 100 years later and 4 million Congolese dead since 1998, the same fight continues and you can participate in this historic initiative in the following ways:

• Donate funds and materials
• Organize meetings
• Raise funds
• Write articles
• Translate documents
• Spread the word
• Host events
• Build databases
• Conduct research
• Start a blog on behalf of the Congo
• Create a link to our site
• Start a Congo support group
