Amalkher Djibrine Souleymane is the founder and President of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) in Chad. She has seven years of experience in working within Chadian civil society, focusing on women’s and youth’s rights, and is one of the country’s youngest businesswomen. In 2013, in an effort to further realize her dream of creating a platform that brings together African youths to share ideas and find solutions to socials problems including poverty, insecurity, and bad governance, Amalkher founded an initiative called Nirvana, for which she serves as board member. In recognition of her good work, Amalkher was selected as one of four young people from her country to receive a 2015 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. The program was created by President Obama and operates through his Young African Leaders Initiative. Today, she is seen as one of the undisputed leaders of Chadian youth.
