Student to discuss development work in Democratic Republic of Congo

The Democratic Republic of Congo has been labelled “the worst place in the world to be a woman,” says Kate Murray. So why did this 21-year old social justice student travel to the war-torn African country?

“To promote education,” says Murray, who spent two and a half weeks this summer in the Congolese province of North Kivu.

“Supporting primary education in North Kivu, educating oneself, and supporting the dissemination of first-hand knowledge in Canada are, I believe, integral to eradicating poverty,” she says.
