It's a common question to roll through our inbox, "How can I get involved?!" I love it when people are inspired by our work. Often our friends and community don't realize just how easy it is to support us, even if they are not in a position to donate. So, I put together a quick list of how you can empower ForgottenSong to empower others.
A big part of our mission at Forgottensong is raising awareness about certain challenges on our globe. Our focus is on the Democratic Republic of the Congo where we've been able to partner with an amazing team. This partnership allows us to use our resources in step with our Congolese friends who are former child soldiers themselves, now working to rehabilitate former child soldiers and end the recruitment of children into warfare. If you can't contribute financially help us share their story. Consider sharing this video with your Facebook network, friends, family, and co-workers. A lot of our donations and support come from individuals just like you who stumble across us online. Consider sharing our video to help us raise awareness.

As always, thanks for your love and support. Progress is being in made in our corner of the Congo. The first got project is up and going and soon we will be expanding that project to another village. Slowly but surely, with your help, we are empowering a generation of children, former child soldiers, to change the narrative of their generation.
