I am passionate about

Actions

I have been involved in social activities and voluntarism as Social Activist for 9 years. First I was member of Instituto Industrial Student Core and later I joined COALIZÃO , during this time of activism I have been involved in various activities in areas of Youth development (Gender equity, advocacy for youth empowerment and participation, promotion of Sexual and reproductive rights, promotion of entrepreneurship and promotion of development agendas such as: MDG and new SGD, African Youth Chapter). I am currently working with vulnerable girls aged 10 to 19 years old that are in high risk to early marriage and teenager pregnant, where we support them to develop their skills and make their awareness on their rights and be empowered to raise up their voices to have full exercise and protection of their rights, in this program we use mentor-ship to develop their skills, and we support their reintegration and maintenance in school. I am also in a program that intends to advocate for the meaningful involvement of young people in programs of development, in Universal Periodic Review, among others. I work with religious leaders to involve then in protection of the rights of children and young girls. As member of African Youth Panel and Youth African Leaders Forum (YALF), I promote the active participation of Young people in Development of Africa. I was part of the stream committee to establish the SADC Youth Body a platform that will enable young people across SADC being more involved and engaged in SADC development activities to faster the development of the Region.
