Fatuma Abdulkadir Adan
I am a lawyer by training from the remote and conflict-plagued Marsabit region of northern Kenya, where i seeks to promote peace in Northern region and especially between the Borana, Rendile and Gabra peoples. A proponent of peaceful conflict resolution, currently mediating a conflict that has taken hundreds of lives in recent years and involves populations in both Kenya and Ethiopia. My organization HODI focuses on the youth (warrior age) and stresses a peaceful, cooperative approach which can benefit both communities. Its my belief that change from within is possible and basically the belief that youths and women can have a say in issues that affect them has led to my initiatives.
