Happy Mother’s Day to the two incredible mothers who have shown me the meaning of love. Today I am making donations to two organizations in their honor: @cut50’s #DignityForIncarceratedWomen campaign, a national initiative to help reduce the prison population while making our communities safer, and @NationalBailout, an incredible organization that works with groups all over the country on Mother’s Day to bail out black moms and caregivers, provide supportive services and fellowship opportunities to help end money bail and pretrial detention.

Yesterday the @easterncongo Initiative crew and I visited one of the coffee farms we have been supporting. ECI helps these amazing (mostly women) farmers with technical assistance by helping them access international markets. 
In the course of the five years we’ve worked with them, farmer income has gone up 300%!! We’ve met so many amazing farmers over the years and when they told us they had never drank coffee, much less the coffee from the beans they harvest, we decided to change that. 
Brought some of their roasted coffee back to the farm yesterday. Asked Guancedica if she would do us the honor of sharing her first taste of coffee with us. She’s been farming coffee for more than fifty years! And never tried it. 
Take a look at the reaction to her first taste.

Loved being with our @easterncongo team and partners including Nobel Prize winner @drdenismukwege in #easterncongo. Heroes all around. This week’s trip reminds me that despite its challenges, the Congo is home to some of the world’s most impressive people and majestic places. This new year I am wishing for continued growth, less violence and a peaceful transition of power for our friends in #Congo #DRC

The past 72 hours have taken an enormous toll on first responders and emergency services in California, who are heroically battling multiple wildfires across the state. These fires have been intensified by a severe drought and by climate change, which affects all people, regardless of their political viewpoint. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the victims, their families, and those who have lost their homes. To find out how you can support relief efforts, visit calfund.org/disaster (link in bio)

#TripleFrontier is officially wrapped. It still hits me how fortunate I am to get to do this, and it never gets old. So grateful for every opportunity I get, the people I get to work with, and witnessing beauty in all sorts of surprising places. Here are some shots from our last day at Base Camp with director J.C. Chandor.

More than anything, in my work with @EasternCongo Initiative, I’ve learned that small acts matter. They can transform lives and communities. There’s no better example of this than the remarkable work the Starkey Hearing Foundation does for communities all around the world. 
It is an honor to receive the 2017 Starkey Hearing Foundation Gala Humanitarian Award, and an honor of a lifetime to have you as a partner to support the Congolese. This award is for all of them. @StarkeyCares #StarkeyGala

Seven years ago we founded @easterncongo to help provide the Congolese people with economic opportunities and a stable civil society. Last week I witnessed firsthand how hard work and sustainable investment is helping to achieve that goal. Special thanks to Howard G.

Just got home from a listening and learning trip throughout rural eastern Congo. Seven years ago, I founded @EasternCongo Initiative (www.easterncongo.org), a grant making and advocacy organization, focused on investing directly in the Congolese people. I feel beyond fortunate to have had the opportunity to again return to Congo, seeing friends, visiting with longtime grantees, and some of our newest partners. 
Hard to believe this was my tenth trip to such an amazing place, a country I have fallen in love with. During my week-long visit, I visited several coffee communities and many of our community-based partners in the field. I also saw the positive impact Starbucks' investment in the coffee sector is making to thousands of families along Lake Kivu. 
Additionally, I spent an afternoon with women and girls, one as young as 7, who have survived horrific sexual violence. Thanks to the extraordinary work of our long-time grantee La Dynamique des Femmes Jurists (http://www.dfj-rdc.org), these brave women and girls are being provided judicial services to bring their cases to court, receive medical support and psychological counseling. 
It was also stunning to trek into Virunga – the African continent’s very first National Park – to witness a family of Mountain Gorillas in the wild, alongside the inimitable Chief Warden Emmanuel de Merode and the park’s valiant rangers. (www.virunga.org)  I am hopeful that they will continue to win the fight against the ongoing threats of oil exploration and violence towards the gorillas in this precious place. 
Every time I visit, I leave even more inspired there will be a brighter and more peaceful future for the Congolese. The challenges are real, and the road is long, but the Congolese are the hardest working and most hopeful people I know.  We often speak of heroes - I count these among the many.  It’s the honor of a lifetime to support Congo.  My heart will forever be there with them.
