Namaa Al-Mahdi

"In Sudan, we are one-third illiterate - not stupid."

Namaa's digital campaigns have helped to free over 4000 political detainees in the Sudan, raised funds for floods and disasters and raised awareness of human rights issues.

She works tirelessly online to shed light on some of the issues facing Sudanese and to engage and empower Sudanese communities to organise and to act for change.

For the past four years she has targeted the current political leadership in the Sudan, exposing human rights violations, calling for action against them nationally and internationally and empowered grass-roots movements. 

The campaign also aimed to address the root causes of bad governance through a series of targeted campaigns aimed at empowering a nation striving for human rights, peace and justice.
