NEW City of Joy Website Launches!
V-Day is proud to announce the launch of the new City of Joy website!
Join us as drc.vday.org where you will meet the people of City of Joy; hear voices from Bukavu and beyond; visit the V-World Farm through incredible images by Paula Allen; explore the history of City of Joy and V-Day’s work in Congo; learn the 10 guiding principals, and more.
On February 14, 2013, one billion women and men shook the earth through dance to end violence against women and girls. Thousands from Bukavu and the surrounding communities joined City of Joy to rise against violence.
We cannot just protect the women, we must teach how to protect the environment, to feed mother nature who feeds us. Congo is the second lung of humanity. We need these trees to breathe.”
