The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is known as the “Rape Capital of the World”. Over the last 13 years, hundreds of thousands of women and girls have been systematically raped. City of Joy provides a revolutionary community for survivors of sexual warfare. Brave women survivors apply to attend the City of Joy. In this community, they receive emotional healing, learn a trade, and are empowered to go into the communities of the DRC to stand proud and become leaders.

Your support shows the Congolese women and girls that you care. It is a powerful way to help them rebuild and transform their lives.

The construction of the City of Joy started in September 2009 and opened its doors in June 2011. Many of the survivors of the sexual warfare are the brave planners and constructors of the City of Joy. Since it’s opening, over 200 women and girls have graduated from City of Joy.

V-Day receives funding from private foundations and individual donors as well as its vast global network of activists. This 5K run/walk is one of many initiatives around the world that support the City of Joy.
