NEWS FROM THE CONGO

Join us on the journey...
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), women are at the center of everything-their families, their communities, and day-to-day life. They are the carriers of the culture. Yet women in the Congo rarely have economic power or influence. First Step Initiative's Women Rising! Program uses grants to help these women achieve their dreams.
