Introduction: Continued

My name is Mwasi Longangi. I am married to Hubert Kabongo and have two children. I completed my studies in Rural Development, specializing in Environment and Sustainable Development. I work for a women’s organization.

Eight years ago I spent a year in Goma as a coordinator with CELPA’s (The Community of Free Pentecostal Churches in Africa) Office of Community Development. We worked a lot on violence against women caused by the war in Masisi, Walikale and Rutshuru, providing women with medicine, food, and non-food supplies.

After that, I was hired by the AJV (The Association of Legal Support for Victims of Violence) as an assistant for the Lega people in southern Kivu, where I took charge of fieldwork in Kaniola, Makobola, and Kalehe. I researched victims, their parents, and families with children born out of rape. I received victims in our office and listened to their stories. I also created records and guided victims under a lawyer’s counsel, regularly following the progress of their cases in court. Finally, I accompanied victims to the hospital and offered unique legal expertise to social organizations caring for them.

Currently, I work in the advancement of rural women victims of war through artisanal juice production of various fruits (passion fruit, pineapple, strawberries, ginger). My goal is to one day see women and young Congolese women take charge of their whole development. We also farm and cultivate these different fruits with rape victims in Walikale. After selling these juices, I use the money I earn to buy TB tests, food and non-food supplies, and medicine, which I distribute to them at the end of each month.
