What Leja Bulela Annual Conference is all about
Each year we host our annual conference in a different city. The conference is our largest fundraiser of the year and the money made from the conference goes to serve our various initiatives including the Kalala Muzeu Health Clinic, scholarship funds, and potable water project.
By participating in the annual conference, you help to make a major impact for the people of Democratic Republic of Congo.
Come to the conference and you'll get a fully immersive Congolese experience including a cultural night, traditional Congolese music, and a dynamic lineup of speakers. We can't wait to see you in St. Louis!
About Leja Bulela:
Leja Bulela exists to provide financial and social support to people in the Kasai-Oriental Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. We do this by:

2) teaching the American public about the history and culture of the Luba people;
3) fundraising for our initiatives in Tshibombo Tshimuangi;
4) supporting other organizations working in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
