Today, our founder turns 60 years old!
I can’t imagine a world without Mama Gorethy. She had a dream growing up as a young Congolese orphan, then a young Congolese attorney, then a refugee living in Dallas as her country was torn apart by war. She cried a lot during those days.
That dream: To lift up women and girls of the Democratic Republic of Congo through education.
But we have survived the uncertainty and our students are thriving.
Thanks to a grant from Northridge Presbyterian Church in Dallas, we’ve started construction on our latest classroom, which will house our fifth-grade students (we could use a bit of help with that if you’d like to honor Mama Gorethy in our Facebook birthday fundraiser).
And thanks to all of you who support these rising leaders.
I promise they will make you proud.
Chair of the Board, Congo Restoration
