Serving and Saving Lives

Serving and Saving Lives November 19, 2018


Congo Rising (  is now a 501c3 company. Here’s our first fundraiser as a 501c3! We focus on:
SANITATION (compost toilets and hand-washing units.Compost is for use in tree groves.)

ORAL HISTORIES AS LIBRARIES in a place with few books and no libraries. (The oral history center will be set up in cyber-cafes which the students will establish. Cyber cafes pay for their education.)

We hire students to build, man, and maintain the sanitation stations and the cyber cafes, and to take and bind oral histories.


Even $1.00 makes a difference! We want to inspire families to serve—from youngest to oldest! Choose your gift and your reward—or choose no reward. $1.00 buys soap and a wash cloth
