Silent War

10.13.2010

    It is always exciting for me to see something I enjoy so much being used to help people, my people.  I lived in  Congo for a short time as a young girl, and still have family living in Congo so this got my attention. I'm talking about Action Kivu. This group is helping the women of Congo through SEWING!
Kivu Sewing Workshop
     Action Kivu provides some of Eastern Congo's victims of violence with the opportunity to rebuild their lives, dignity, hope, and gain economic self-sustenance.
     The sewing workshop is a program  where the students, all victims of the violence in Congo, learn to sew, knit and embroider. The goal is that these women will be able to work on their own as seamstresses providing and income for themselves and their families. 
     This sewing and Education program Actions pour le Bien ĂȘtre de la Femme et de l'Enfant au Kivu was founded by Congolese educator and interpreter Amani Matabaro Tom and his seamstress wife, Amini Bukanda. It started in a small humble shack to help their cousins who were victims of rape. When people started hearing about what Matabaro and his wife were doing more and more started showing up to learn and ABFEK was born. Action Kivu is an american Non-profit working together with them to help the women and children of Congo.
