As the Legal Representative of ANEVORWA, she is in charge of the overall management of the organization and its projects. She also takes active part in resource mobilization, project design, and implementation. She is responsible for leading and managing the organisation by developing strategy and operational plans, designing and implementing projects, managing projects, preparing monitoring and evaluation reports, and coordinating fundraising activities to support our project funds. She is also responsible for building relationships and collaborative networking with governmental and non-governmental institutions, national, and international funding organizations.
ANEVORWA aims to work hand-in-hand with other non-governmental organizations (NGO), community-based organizations (CBO), grassroots groups, and committees to promote human rights, to have girls and women playing an active role in their communities, claim their right to gender equality, and live a life free from violence. ANEVORWA engages in monitoring, documenting, reporting, research, advocacy, and training for different groups which focus on human rights, peace, gender, women, children and youth. Its vision is to have a society where women, youths, and under privileged groups are aware of their rights, participate in decision making, have equal access to resources and benefits, and become self-reliant.
I’d like to take my leadership role to a new level with the ability to create innovative ideas and think outside the box. Joining a Legal Empowerment Network will definitely allow me to share a wonderful learning experience.
