"I am from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where I am a specialist in household violence in the Great Lakes Region.

Safe World For Women influenced my wife, Bahati, and myself to set up a project in the DRC. The project is called COFAPRI, meaning in full the Congolese Females' Action for Promoting Rights and Development. It aims at raising the awareness of violence done on women, girls and children of the DRC and empowering them to say no to violence, injustice and discrimination they undergo at home and in the society.

I have an MA in Conflict Resolution and I am a writer for the Los Angeles based BrooWaha newspaper and I am also a university lecturer."
