This is the leitmotif of Mamas for Africa, a new member association of Make Mothers Matter, active in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Headquartered in Belgium, Mamas for Africa works in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo to support women and girls in their fight against violence, poverty and inequality. Its goal is to make defenseless women strong and resilient.
Mamas for Africa works with local partners to act on 3 levels:
“In all our activities, women are at the center. To make women resilient so that they can claim their rights themselves is the objective of our work. We always do it in accordance with the cultural norms and customs in force. In no way do we impose the Western way of seeing the rights of women. This, moreover, would not work. The important thing is for women to discover by themselves how to claim their rights, in full respect of their own cultural identity.”
