Rising together

"I am not interested in making a little noise, I'm looking to change the paradigm!"
-Neema Namadamu, Founder
We operate a number of programs but really, everything we do is about one thing: 

Lifting Up Women




Hero Women Rising aims to improve the conditions in which women and adolescent girls live in South Kivu province, eastern D.R. Congo.


To achieve this end, we use education and technology to amplify women’s voices; teach them to advocate for their rights and for the natural environment; build their economic capacity; and support the development of other community grassroots women’s organizations.

We envision a peaceful and prosperous eastern Congo, where women have equal access to meaningful decision-making at all levels and are empowered to contribute to society according to their own inspiration. 

"We Africans are Rich and we are Proud"

- Keeping Girls in School
- Building Capacity of Local Leaders

- Planting Trees

Dedicate a birthday, wedding registry or just help raise money for girls in need.


Join our online community and connect with women in the Congo.  


Help get the word out about women's empowerment by sharing with your friends, family and networks.
