March 13, 2020 at 7:30 pm at Al Farooq Masjid of Atlanta, there will be a special presentation about the struggles and
progress of women in the Republic Of Congo and the work being done by Women Rising. Our special guest will be none other that the founder of Women Rising Sister, Comrade Neema Namadamu.
Neema Namadamu is the founder of Hero Women Rising, or Maman Shujaa
in Swahili. She is a visionary activist and tireless champion for women's
and girls' empowerment in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a
country the UN has designated as the worst place in the world for women
and girls. Neema has ambitious dreams for women in her country: "I'm not
interested in making a little noise - I'm looking to change the paradigm!"
Neema is the first woman with a disability from her tribe to graduate from
college in Congo. She has served in Parliament and as the Chief Advisor to
DRC’s Minister of Gender and Family. Under her guidance, Hero Women
Rising operates many powerful programs in eastern DRC, all with one goal:
lifting up women. Her programs include Getting Women Online, Keep Girls
in School, Girl Ambassadors for Peace, and many more.
Neema says “Impact is not measured by whether or not you are
amassing followers, but whether or not you are inspiring
leadership. We don’t want a world of leaders and followers, but
leaders only – all of us together leading this world into the good of
all that’s possible.”
