Great that you want to reach out to us! 

Elisabeth Kaneza’s strength is her strong voice for justice, equality and self-determination. Her unique approach towards the advocacy for human rights and intercultural dialogue continues to open doors for mutual understanding and respect in Germany and beyond.

She says

We must strive for making a difference each day. Change is not achieved by waiting and staring in the air. My example proves that one person armed with determination and belief in the fundamental norms and principles of human rights can overcome adversity, and also a tragic past – and make a difference. How more can we achieve if we join our forces? We can move mountains. I wished that people would realise the power we have as a collective to actually make a change. We can! We can and therefore we must work together.”
