Interests: Gender-based violence, Peace-building, Women's Rights
As a human rights defender since five years ago, I have an extensive experience in coaching and empowering women on human rights concepts so that they know, enjoy and claim their rights when needed and on the creation of income-generating activities so that women do not always depend financially on their husbands; in the fight against gender-based violence and in the management of conflicts and especially those of land.
In the organization, I am the executive secretary. By joining this network, I want to share the experience with other organizations operating in the same field of intervention around the world so that I am up to date with what is happening in other parts of the world.
