New York, NY
Join us for shopping and cocktails at Tory Burch to celebrate the Grand Opening of the Georges Malaika Foundation Girls School in Democratic Republic of the Congo, DRC.
20% of the evening sales will go to benefit GMF and its mission to support girls accessing opportunities in Congo by providing an all-inclusive tuition free education to 104 girls at our School in Kalebuka.
GMF founder, Noella Musunka will be on hand to present the starting class of 104 girls and share information about phases 1-3 of the school project.
About Georges Malaika Foundation:
Named in memory of Noella Coursaris Musunka’s father, Georges, and the Swahili word malaika, for ‘angel,’ the Georges Malaika Foundation (GMF) is empowering African girls through education.
GMF is dedicated to the advancement of African communities by providing educational opportunities to young girls, ages 5 to 18. Our vision is to mobilize the resources necessary to overcome the insurmountable obstacles a young girl faces in obtaining an education in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We will provide assistance that paves the way for opportunity, generates greater choice and empowers girls to make informed decisions. GMF endeavors to permanently alter the cycle of illiteracy and poverty – first in Lubumbashi, DRC, then throughout the DRC and all of Africa.
