We Are The Voice
FOR THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN OF CONGO
ELISABETH KADESI: FOUNDER, CEO & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Elisabeth B. Kadesi was born in the South of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and spent 5 years in South Africa before she moved to the USA.
Throughout high school and college she began to hear about the disastrous broadcast of women mutilation and impunity in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The negative press that was often publicized about Africa and Congo in particular motivated her to do more research on the history of her native country and
to show the world a different type of Africa “the beauty behind despair”. Elisabeth is a current graduate, an activist and a social entrepreneur at heart with the
drive to change the negative press on Africans. During her early years in college she joined African networks such pageants and leadership programs to
emphasize the implementation of business and education in African communities.
Through her humanitarian platforms her passion to help the Democratic Republic of Congo became more than just a platform but a mission. She strongly
believes that the raping of women is a strategy to destabilize the communities, because women are the backbone of communities; with We Are The Voice
she believes that small concise progress can be made to help empower women and children of Democratic Republic of Congo.
