In May 2015, a 7-marathon, 7-day expedition along the shores of Lake Kivu in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo will raise awareness and funds for the inspiring female coffee farmers, farming families and cooperatives working toward gender equality in the region.

A team of runners will participate in the first ever Run Across Congo, supporting and celebrating the resurgence of the Kivu Region through empowering women in farming communities. Runners will traverse the Great Lakes region of Africa for 300km and include stops in farming communities with whom organizing partners, On The Ground and Twin, have existing relationships, including coffee cooperatives and local officials.

Awareness and funds raised from Run Across Congo will have several long-term impacts, including gender equality and women’s empowerment programs, creating access to knowledge, land and income beyond coffee. Funds will be used to empower and educate female farmers to run their own lives and businesses and create a brighter future for coffee communities affected by civil war in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
