Update from our Partner in the DRC

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, The MATCH Fund is supporting Action Femme et Eco Justice (AFECOJU) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

When the land was stolen out from underneath five young Congolese women, AFECOJU came to the rescue. Thanks to their relentless advocacy, all five women still have a plot of earth to call home. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, land rights are a hot button issue — especially for women in rural areas. AFECOJU works with thousands of women who are struggling to stay on their land and grappling with the daily effects of climate change.
