Be Part Of the Story…

The ‘Be Part Of The Story’ Family…

#bepartofthestory is a family of organisations in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We believe that all individuals and groups have a part to play in the story of life, and we are excited to play our part! We know that we can go further together, so we are committed to each other to work alongside each other for the best of ourselves, our loved ones and our communities.

Host a Supporter’s Event

We are always looking for people who would be up for hosting a supporters event for The Congo Tree, where we can share about the situation in DRC and the work that we do. These can be held anywhere – from your local theatre to your living room! It could involve our staples of ‘Coffee and Cake’ or could be a fundraising music night at your local bar – we’re open to suggestions, so please get in touch!

Invite us in…

We love to share the story of how The Congo Tree came to be and all the great things that are happening on the ground. We can speak and/or run informative, active sessions in schools, youth groups, churches, offices… anywhere really.
