Lenka Nemer is an activist for human rights, social justice and gender equity. As an international affairs graduate, her biggest dream is to be able to advocate against hunger and violence around the world.
After struggling with food security as a child, she created "Huertos Urbanos Bolivia," an initiative that provides education about urban cultivation and ways to eradicate hunger.
Lenka also advocates for education in equity with a gender perspective.
Thanks to various universities and local institutions, such as Teach for Bolivia, Lenka was able to generate a series of workshops and talks to identify violence and educate about gender equity from an ontological, epistemological and legal perspective. She hopes to use her voice to reach all areas of her country to eradicate gender violence.
Although Lenka was born in Bolivia, her mother's ancestors came from Croatia and her father's family comes from a small village in southern Lebanon.
Lenka can communicate in English, French, Portuguese, Aymara, Guarani, Croatian and Bolivian sign language.
Thanks to her career she discovered that she is fond of studying history!
