Country or Region: 

I am a human rights defender and social justice activist.  I currently works as the Policy Analyst for the AU Monitor initiative of Fahamu.  Fahamu supports the struggle for human rights and social justice in Africa by: supporting social justice advocacy through the innovative use of information and communication technologies; stimulating debate, discussion and analysis; distributing news and information; developing training materials and running distance-learning courses.  Prior to joining Fahamu, I was the Program Coordinator for Africa and the Middle East at WITNESS, an organisation that uses video and online technologies to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations. At WITNESS, I trained human rights defenders from across Africa and the Middle East in the use of video as a tool for advocacy and produced several videos for change - successfully creating change in policy and practice in various contexts.
