A call out to all you Crafty peeps who have a global conscience and a big heart.
Action Kivu is a non profit organisation that helps women who are the victims of the conflict in Eastern Congo by teaching them to sew at a sewing workshop. These new skills give the women confidence and a way to provide an income for their family, giving them independence.
Action Kivu also pays for children affected by the conflict to attend school and provides support in other areas of the community.
"The American staff of Action Kivu is 100% volunteer, so all of your donations, minus nominal banking fees, go directly to the work on the ground, empowering and educating the women and children of eastern Congo."
As if that wasn't reason enough to donate, you can win some fantastic prizes just for donating! Do something good today to change lives.
