The Mothers and Their Club

The mamans shujaa worked in their club, but they found themselves facing many worries in their group for example if one of them got sick, or had a fatale accident. One needs to be sensitive to all members of the club so that if something happens everyone can ban together and intervene on the victim’s behalf. Other difficulties they face are a lack of funds to help the club develop. The mamans shujaa have the courage to hold meetings twice a week but without any available space or location to hold the meetings, they only meet once a week at Bukavu.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Hi Hamisi

Hello Hamisi,
I have enjoyed hearing about the Mamans Shujaa through World Pulse ... what has been your experience so far? Your ideas on how to improve the gatherings sound possible. Have you felt a sense of community gathering? How can you ban together to support one another further? I would love to hear your ideas and solutions to help strengthen such an amazing group. Change can be slow but voices like your own can only inspire the process to move faster. Best wishes and I would love to hear more from you!
Much love,

Thanks Hamisi

Do you think more international cooperation is needed for Mamans Shujaa to continue operating?

It's really difficult

It should be too hard for her to take care of all those - work, club, people, etc. Especially for a woman in a country like Congo. She might have had too many other problems and faced harassment too. So that even makes it harder.
