Celebrating 5 Years of The Congo Tree!10th April 2018

This year, we are delighted to have reached our 5th Birthday! In 5 years, we have inspired, equipped and supported over 500 young people in DRC and the UK (so they tell us!) and we think this is something to celebrate!

So, we are hosting 2 celebration events.

The first will be held in Goma, DRC on April 21st 2018 (invitations have been sent out).

The second will be held in Birmingham, UK on June 30th 2018. The Boston Tea Party on Corporation Street will be hosting us from 7pm, where there will be a 3 course meal, silent auction, raffle and live music. To top it all off, we will be partying with a silent disco from 9pm so, whether you want an African-inspired playlist, dance only to retro sounds, or prefer to throw your shapes to current chart tunes, come and celebrate with us! The event is suitable for anyone aged 13 years and up, and every ticket includes a small donation to The Congo Tree.

We’re excited to announce some special guests for the event:

Founding Member and Trustee Hebdavi Kyeya has travelled from DRC to be with us on the evening, and will be taking a few minutes to share his experience with The Congo Tree and the impact he has seen on the young leaders in DRC.

The wonderfully talented Philippa Zawe will be bringing her guitar and beautiful vocals to perform live for us.
