Our Marketing Officer Junior Masandi wowed thousands as he set himself to walk from London to Middlesbrough to raise money.
“My passion lies in being part of a change in my motherland, and that’s what drives me to raise awareness and challenge myself to bring change in the lives of the Youth in Congo”. Junior Masandi – Revive Congo Social Media Coordinator
Before getting involved with Revive Congo, Junior fell in love with the collective passion and drive to make a change in Congo. Even more so, he thoroughly believed in Revive Congo’s model and plans to foster the leaders of tomorrow in the Congo and the UK.
Revive Congo is currently fundraising to send a group of girls and boys to school this year & develop a programme in Congo to give our next generation the skills so they can become entrepreneurs, employable, and take on Congo. Given that Congo is known as one of the most dangerous places to be a woman (previously the worst) and having had child soldiers and stricken with poverty, we know that we cannot reach our mission/goals alone. We are proud to join hands and collaborate with fellow charities to develop these young girls into the women of tomorrow safely.
For Junior’s effort to make this happen, he walked 250 miles (London to Middlesbrough) last October. The walk began from London’s King Cross and ended in Middlesbrough Town Centre. He actively blogged, did live videoing, shared his journey, and the aim was to walk on average 40 miles a day
