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.

When we started the Congo Restoration Girls School of Compassion in the fall of 2019, we had no idea we were on the brink of a pandemic.

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). 
This September, our school will house 140 girls in grades first through fifth. We couldn’t have done it without the vision of Mama Gorethy and the support of our fans. Mama Gorethy smiles more than she cries about her country these days. That’s because of these girls. That’s because her dream is coming true.
Join me in wishing Mama Gorethy a happy birthday.
And thanks to all of you who support these rising leaders.
I promise they will make you proud.

Many thanks,
Dawn McMullan
Chair of the Board, Congo Restoration
