GMF Raises $135,000 in March to Benefit School Children in the Democratic Republic of Congo!

| May 3, 2013

Through all of our fundraising efforts, GMF raised an astounding $135,000 in the month of March! We couldn’t be happier and all this money will go towards our life-changing projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We are now able to build three more rooms at the School and can thus enroll an additional 30 girls this September. We thank everyone for all the support they have shown!

GMF Fundraising Efforts

Our March 19th fundraising event, “The Rise of Congo”, proved to be incredibly popular. There was a lot of pre-event publicity that led to a higher than anticipated turn out, and we do apologize to anyone who was not able to get in. It was a lovely evening, with comedian Eddie Kadi hosting and with many GMF supporters in attendance. There were wonderful guest speakers and a performance by the fantastic Congolese singer, Lokua Kanza. There was also a display of paintings by local Congolese artists and photographs by Richard Foulser.

You can still order the beautiful dresses and jewelry that were featured during our fashion show! A portion of the sale will go to GMF, just email info@gmfafrica.org for any enquiries and we can set up the order for you. Some of the paintings are still available as well!
