The Makalanga Women's Resource Centre was officially inaugurated and given to the women of Lugushwa - September 2011

The Banro Foundation has completed a new type of project, which it is hoped will become a model for similar facilities in the eastern Congo. The Makalanga Women's Resource Centre was officially inaugurated and given to the women of Lugushwa in September 2011. It currently provides literacy training and sewing classes, with additional programs planned for the future. The Banro Foundation is also underwriting training costs for the first year of operation.
