Neema Namadamu

Neema was born in the village of Marunde in Itombwe Sector of Mwenga territory in South Kivu province. Neema persevered to become the first handicapped woman from her tribe to graduate university, which laid a foundation for a career in public service that eventually brought her to serve as chief advisor to Congo’s Minister of Gender and Family. In 2007, Neema moved from Kinshasa back to Bukavu and started a NGO to enable and empower women with disabilities, and then in 2014, started SAFECO – Synergy of Congolese Women’s Associations – to enable and empower all Congolese women.
