Who we Are

We are the Maman Shujaa, or Hero Women of Congo. We are GRASSROOTS ADVOCATES for Peace, for women's rights, rights for the disabled, community rights, rights for nature, and the right to a future for our children. We operate a number of programs but really, all that we do is about one thing; lifting women, building women, elevating women's understanding, capacity, and ability to be the women they were created to be, for themselves, their families, and their communities.


We work to support the grassroots women's empowerment work of Neema Namadamu in the Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond.
