How can one student, one school, your school, help bring peace to the lives of women in the Congo?
The answer is simple, HOLLER.
The Democratic Republic of Congo has been called the Rape Capital of the World, thousands upon thousands of women are victims of sexual violence every year.
This HollerDay, March 4th, make as much noise and raise as much money as possible to make real, sustainable change in the DRC. Every dollar you raise will go directly to supporting women’s rights in the Congo.
Every dollar donated will go directly to jhr (Journalists for Human Rights) programs fighting widespread rape and other forms of sexual abuse in the DRC.
jhr is Canada’s largest international media development organization. jhr’s goal – to make everyone in the world fully aware of their rights – is as unique as it is powerful. Creating rights awareness is the first and most necessary step to ending rights abuses. By mobilizing the media to spread human rights awareness, jhr informs people about human rights, empowering marginalized communities to stand up, speak out and protect themselves.
