Visionary PeaceMaker

Neema Namadamu

Neema Namadamu on World Pulse magazine cover

Welcome. This site is meant to introduce you to our many initiatives to empower women and girls in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We are grassroots advocates for Peace first and foremost, for women’s rights, rights for the disabled, community rights, rights for nature, and the right to a future for our children. We strive to achieve these goals through a “together” approach, as you will find outlined on our SAFECO page. You will meet disabled women obtaining independence, having become the bread-winners for their families on the ACOLDEMHA page. You will learn more of our intention to connect the whole of Congo to one another and the world on the GO NETwork page.

Be sure to check in with us regularly, and sign up for our newsletter so that you may stay abreast of our progress in manifesting the new Congo.

We thank you. We welcome you. Be free.
