The “Greensboro Project: Many Voices, Many Stories” was an independent project started by Karun Prasanna of North West Guilford High School. Karun interviewed refugees from different countries who are currently living in Greensboro, North Carolina.
PTPL founders, Bahekelwa Imatha (Baim) and Matumaini Furaha (Mimi), were interviewed on July 11th, 2018. They both shared the struggles they faced when they first arrived in the United States after fleeing the University Massacre in Zaire. Baim talked about the challenges that PTPL encountered at its inception, notably the incorporation of PTPL as a nonprofit organization and the formation of the first committee.
As co-founder Mimi said in the interview: “there are always good people everywhere”. Therefore, PTPL hopes that this interview will reach those good people willing to support our cause of helping women and children in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
