Naeema is a dynamic theater director, theater of the oppressed trainer, and social activist on various international platforms. She plans to build out an organization that uses various forms of theater training and performances to bring attention to critical issues within communities. With the Lab’s support she is working to raise youth awareness about citizen rights and responsibilities, the role of political representatives, and the importance of integrity among public officials.
“There are not many organizations that understand the value of creative ideas for social change. The Accountability Lab took a chance on me, and now I’m showing what is possible when we use theater to engage youth in the movement for integrity. The Lab’s support has been incredible- from program design to application writing to communications and outreach”. – Naeema
