Welcome to the "Congo Pamoja" Independence Day Celebration!

We are excited to join hands with The Michigan Congolese Youth Council in celebrating the Democratic Republic of Congo's Independence Day. This day promises a vibrant fusion of culture, sports, fashion, and culinary delights, all under the theme of unity and celebration.

Join us for a day filled with excitement, starting with an exhilarating soccer match, followed by a showcase of elegance and style in our fashion & sapologie show. Indulge your taste buds in delicious Congolese cuisine, and groove to the rhythm of music that resonates with the spirit of unity and joy.

Don't miss out on the highlight of the day - the Pondu competition, where culinary skills meet creativity in a friendly competition.

Let's come together as one community, celebrating our heritage and unity in diversity. Welcome to "Congo Pamoja"!

Warm regards,
Les Clay Team
