I am Aquina Bih, a Masters Human Rights Law, Humanitarian Law and International Criminal law graduate from the University of Dschang Cameroon. I hold a bachelors in law and Political Science. I am most passionate about human rights. I want a just society wherein everyone is given equal opportunities. I further want to see women empowered and refuse to be relegated to the back. I am interested in environmental protection as well.
I work with Women in Action against Gender Based Violence Cameroon (WACameron). I work with perpetrators of gender based violence and give them room to reflect on their acts. I empower women and encourage marginalized persons to speak out. I provide psycho-social support to survivors of gender base violence. I can create lasting partnerships with the government and other civil societies working within our scope. I seek, redress, monitor and report cases of human rights violations.
I look forward to network with activists o human rights in general.
