Buy a Handmade Congolese Bag and Show Your Solidarity with the Women of the Democratic Republic of Congo!
These unique bags are made by women who are participants in UNICEF-supported NGOs that are doing life-saving work on the ground. Eve Ensler bought one of these bags on her recent trip to DRC, and came up with the idea of selling them abroad to help generate funds for the remarkable women she met. Many who survive sexual violence in DRC suffer stigma and discrimination, resulting in limited economic opportunities. The proceeds from the sale of these bags will help these women get back on their feet and support themselves and their children. Local Congolese fabric was used to make these bags. The bags also include a Stop Raping our Greatest Resource campaign button. For just $20, you can make a difference!
Stop Raping our Greatest Resource: Power to Women in the DRC is a new global campaign to call attention to the wide-scale atrocities committed against women and girls in Eastern DRC and demand an end to the impunity with which these crimes are committed. By joining this campaign, you will be supporting Congolese women and men who are demanding an end to rape. You will be supporting local efforts to demand justice and accountability. You will be supporting survivors of sexual violence to heal and rebuild their lives and communities. And you will join others around the globe to demand that women and girls in DRC are safe. The Campaign is being initiated by V-Day and UNICEF, representing UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict.
