Run for Congo Women began with one woman’s determination to raise awareness about the dire situation in Congo and has become an international movement.
- More than 5.4 million people have died since 1998 in this conflict.
- Half of these deaths are children under the age of five.
- For women in Congo, brutal gang rape and torture are a daily reality.
Run for Congo Women is your opportunity to help support these women and children as they rebuild their lives.

By signing up, you will support Women for Women International’s program in Congo, which provides women with direct assistance and with rights awareness and job skills training that make it possible for Congolese women to start their own micro-enterprises. You also help empower women to provide for their families and regain their role as active members of their communities.
When you participate, you help spread this message: Congolese lives matter. The lives of Congolese women are significant. The lives of Congolese children are precious. We are running to help.
