We Are The Voice


Executive Team: 2017





​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.

Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Richie left at the early of 6 months old to move to South Africa where he lived for a decade. Richie then spent time in Belgium before moving to Texas at the age of 14.  He attended Stephen F. Austin State University where he majored in Marketing, and currently works as a Sales Manager for the largest recruiting company in the country.
Growing during the years of Apartheid in South Africa, he saw first hand the impact just one voice can on a nation through the life of Nelson Mandela.  Richie strives to continue the fight to raise awareness about the cruel violence in his home country, specifically on women and children but also change the negative perception painted by the media. Through his role on the We Are The Voice executive board, he aspires to be the voice for all those in the Congo who's voices aren't being heard.  One of his favorite quotes is by Nelson Mandela that states "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead." Richie believes that he has an obligation to use the platform given to him and fight for the people of the Congo.
