About Me: 

Since 2007 I am working as a peace education advisor in the Eastern part of Congo. I am shocked about what is happening here. Raping is used as an arm in order to harm and eliminate the Congolese population. We must help these women to find again their reason to live and to stand up against this violence. But unfortunately it is difficult to find funding for that.
Before coming to Congo I was working - mainly with refugees - in Benin; India and Uganda.

My Passions: 
sports and travelling
My Challenges: 
working in the forgotten region
My Vision for the Future: 
Women are treated equally in Congo
My Areas of Expertise: 
sports for peace, AVP, peace education, Conflict transformation
My Languages: 
German, French, English
