Sister Angelique Namaika runs Dynamic Women for Peace (DWP), in Dungu, Democratic Republic of Congo. Since 2008, she has been assisting young girls to recover from the trauma of being abducted by the LRA and rebuild their lives. Her organization promotes reintegration and reconciliation by encouraging communities to welcome the return of escapees. It also provides a wide range of vocational training programs and income-generation activities to promote their economic and social reintegration. Sister Angelique also oversees a micro-credit program that helps graduates of the vocational training courses start small businesses, and runs basic literacy classes in Lingala.
