Why should you sponsor?
Not only is the subject matter of great importance but they should want to be part of a new way of thinking and support the concept of Africa beyond aid. They should also want to sponsor home grown talent and initiatives. Basi ya Kongo is a charity run by women for women to empower and inspire women and girls. With all our sponsors we will have a great dedicated relationship where we equality support their initiative too.
My name is Charlhene Kalonji, I was born in Zaire (DRC) I came here as a child and I’ve been here since 1995 I have previously worked for Sainsbury’s Plc for over 14 years and worked for BQ as Manager. I recently reached a personal triumph from heart failure and wanted to work for a more meaningful cause. Having been sexually abused myself I wanted to help those less fortunate find a way to value themselves and demand value from society as most of the women sexually abused in DRC are often neglected by their own families. This is personal and it’s a duty to want to help them because I have i great support group around me and they don’t. That’s my short history and passion.
