Current project – I Am Congo
Continuing its mission working with children in conflict zones, Rogue Foundation will be in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo in October collaborating with and supporting the NGO Camme.
Children coming to CAMME have often been the victims of traumatic events that are too horrible for most of us to imagine. Forced conscription as child soldiers, sexual assault, starvation, begging on the street, and more.
The children are offered a variety of vocational training opportunities, psychosocial assistance, and nutritional support. CAMME specifically seeks to help children who have not found help in more traditional rehabilitation centers.
Not only is Goma located in the midst of a Congo's red zone, where civilians are routinely slaughtered or raped by soldiers and rebels, but it is also the most volcano-threatened city on Earth and is commonly regarded as the most dangerous city in the world.
An exhibition of the children's work is planned at Rogue Space | Chelsea for December. All proceeds will be returned to Camme to help develope further educational and lifeskill programs
Each Rogue Foundation project's intent is to provide children with the materials, encouragement and outlet to express at a critical time in their lives and to support their further education.
