FATUMA MUSA AFRAH
Fatuma Musa Afrah is an award-winning activist that lives for unity. Wherever newcomers and hosts meet and communities change, she can help. Her focus is women empowerment, community inclusion and integration. Most of her work takes place in Berlin, Brandenburg, Somalia and Kenya.
Fatuma came to Germany in mid-2014. By now, her story and personal insight has made her an important advisor for German and European politicians and civil society. With the support of Robert-Bosch-Stiftung, Fatuma is currently founding her own organisation: United Action e.V.
Fatuma has presented her cause in keynotes and talks from Chaos Computer Club to the Council of Europe, from IPI’s Vienna Seminar to both Saxony and Brandenburg State Ministries of Social Affairs. Workshops all over Europe bring Fatuma’s message to life. She continues to work with Caritas, AWO, Paritätischer Gesamtverband, Frauenhauskoordinierung e.V. and others.
