Recently, Pouchmart was part of a very meaningful fundraising event that helps women survivors of gender violenece in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The beautiful jewelry is made by Stanley Creations, Inc. Please read on as our client Jane was kind enough to share some pictures and more information from the event.
Thanks again for donating the pouches! The event was a great success and the pouches added a beautiful touch! Attached are some pictures of the pouches with our jewelry.
The money we raised at the event (www.womenofthecongo.com) was donated to V-Day’s City of Joy. This is a revolutionary new community for women survivors of gender violence in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). City of Joy will provide up to 180 Congolese women a year with an opportunity to benefit from group therapy; self-defense training; comprehensive sexuality education (covering HIV/AIDS, family planning); economic empowerment; storytelling; dance; theater; ecology and horticulture. Created from their vision, Congolese women will run, operate and direct City of Joy themselves.
